Winter Storm Blows Through Grand Forks

Posted: Updated:

  Old Man Winter is also making its presence known in the northern valley.  The morning commute was a tough one for some folks. This driver got stuck trying to cross the median on Highway Two near Fisher. He was able to get out and on his way with a shovel and push from a Good Samaritan.

  At daybreak, out at the Grand Forks Airport it wasn't enough of a storm to cancel or delay flights this morning. But, crews were kept busy clearing snow from parking lots and runways.

  And out on Interstate-29 traveling north and south, the passing lane is covered with some snow and ice. And if you're passed, you can quickly find yourself in a snow fog.

  This driver just made the trip from Minneapolis to Grand Forks.

Bill Heimer, Fisher, MN: "Real tough on I-94 until I got here. Then from Reynolds north it got bad."

  And besides some dicey driving conditions, there's another factor you need to be aware of… if you plan to hit the road. The forecast calls for some very cold temperatures. You need to be prepared.

David Wolf, ND Highway Patrol: "If you're going to be out traveling I would suggest getting a winter survival kit, bring blankets along. If you go in the ditch the temperatures are going to be below zero and it could take us awhile or a wrecker awhile to get there."
