Snowed In

To the surprise of a few meteorologists, a storm system full of moisture seemed to stall right over the Grand Forks area beginning on Saturday afternoon and lasting until Sunday evening. The temperatures were cold enough up in the air so as to make all the precipitation fall as snow, of which Grand Forks proper got between 8 to 10 inches. Other cities in the region, particularly those on the Minnesota side of the Red River, received more than a foot.

I went out on both Saturday and Sunday to take pictures of what I saw. Hopefully they aren’t too bright; they looked fine on the computer I processed them all on, but now that I look at them on my laptop, they all seem a little too overexposed. It could just be my computer acting up, however.

On a normal day, you would be able to see a stoplight, a gas station, and an I-29 overpass from this location - not so when the snow is coming down at a rate of nearly 2 inches an hour
