Storm Blows Through & Cleanup Begins

Posted: Updated:

  Our blizzard has blown out. But, not before dropping two to six-inches of snow in the northern Valley combined with wind gust topping 40-miles per hour Friday night.

  Former Grand Forks reporter, Janel Klein has been telling the rest of the Country about our storm. She's doing reports for the Weather Channel and the NBC Today Show.

  So, what does the rest of the Country think when they see this?"

Janel Klein / Weather Channel: "Well, I certainly this is a news worthy event, given the freezing rain, the snow and the ice and all the things we're seeing in addition to the wind chills. But, I think beyond that there's a sort of amazement from people around the Country that these are the conditions we have here. Not that we're used to it, but we just bundle up and brave through it and we don't make too big a deal of it."

Snowplow man: "Oh, it's always fun. Nothing wrong with a little snow."

Reporter: "It might be a little more amazing for folks down south? Ha.."

Janel Klein: "Yeah, I mean they're talking about turning on their air conditioners in parts of the Country today. So, I think they love seeing us go through this here and seeing us get through this."

  So, city crews, business and home owners all over the Valley continue with a snow cleanup that's rather minor compared to some storms in recent years.  ...for Thomas Sevigny it's a good days work. 

Reporter: "How many places do you have to do today?"

Thomas Sevigny, Grand Forks: "Four, counting this one."

Reporter: "At least the snow wasn't as deep as they thought it was going to be?"

Sevigny: "Which is nice… we'll take though. It looks pretty."

  Yes, it's just another sunny day in the valley as the storm blows through and we settle into some real, January cold weather.

   The good news in the northern Valley storm is that most people stayed home and off the roads. There are no reports of any serious injury accidents around Grand Forks.
