A major snow storm continues to pound North Dakota after already dumping a foot-and-a-half of snow on some parts of the state.
In Minot, the storm made a later-than-expected appearance -
stalling out just south of town for many hours.
But by afternoon, the snow was falling and winds were howling - making for difficult travel in the area.
The snow totaled more than six inches by nightfall and has forced city snow crews to prioritize their work tonight into tomorrow.
Crews in Minot will be working first on the snow emergency routes before getting into any residential areas.
And once they're there, the heavy snow may keep plow drivers from being able to use snow gates to avoid snow piles in front of driveways.
