Bismarck Residents Dig Out From April Snowstorm

Posted:

After a record setting snowfall Sunday, there's not much else to do today besides either play or work in the snow.

From shoveling to snow blowing to delivering mail, many people are find themselves dealing with the fresh snow.

<<"It sucks, I wish I would've had a better snow blower," Ryan Ivestal said.

The feeling is mutual for many North Dakotans after nearly a foot and a half to two feet of snow fell in Bismarck.

"I thought we were going to have spring finally, but I guess we're going to have to wait a little longer now," Leon Geithman said.

Denise Masseth didn't get herself out of work today, she's busy making her daily mail route.

"It has not been fun, you just try and find the open spots if you can, I parked on Boulevard today, probably won't get too far today, but we're going to do what we can," Denise Masseth said.

For Cole Emmel, this is the perfect amount of snow for him to use his John Deere.

"It's just crazy to have this much snow on the ground in the middle of April, this is the most snow I remember ever moving since I've been little, it's just a heck of a lot of snow --- Without this it sure would've taken us a lot longer than it has, so this has been super nice," Cole Emmel said.

Instead of shoveling their driveways with all this snow, some people are being forced to shovel their roofs.

"Cause it's a lot of weight on there and it's a flat roof, so we don't want to take any chances, and then it leaks if I don't," Shane Neibauer said.

Many of these North Dakotans would rather be cutting their grass this time of year, but instead they find themselves using their snow blower, for hopefully the last time.

"I think it would've been better in December, then I could've at least rode my snow mobile, now it's just a waste of time," Ivestal said.

"I guess we're North Dakotans and we learn how to live with everything in weather," Geithman said.>>

Masseth says she's sorry for anyone who didn't get their mail today.

If you didn't get mail today, you'll get it along with tomorrows mail.
