Northern Valley Dodges Major Snowfall, Left with Icy Roads

Posted: Updated:

   The the northern valley dodged the bullet as to any serious snow depths… around 2-inches in Crookston and a little less in Grand Forks.

  Wind gusts are up to 35-miles per hour with steady winds of 20.

  However, the good news out of all this according to the Polk County dispatcher is that there are no reports of any serious accidents in this area and very few cars in the ditch.

  Out on the highway it's tough to distinguish the road from the ditch. In some areas it's just wheel tracks in one lane. The biggest problem is ice. If you hit the brakes at just 30-miles per hour you'll do nothing but slide.

  Tim Loose has been driving these roads most of the day from Grand Rapids Minnesota on his way home to Devils Lake.

Reporter: "See any cars in the ditch?

Tim Loose, Devils Lake: "Not in the last 50-miles, before that I must have seen a dozen."

Reporter: "How fast are you able to go?"

Tim Loose: "Anywhere between 30 and 45."

  So while we don't have a major snowfall to cleanup, there are a lot of icy roads all over the northern valley.
