Winter Weather

Posted: Updated:

Today's snowfall got a fairly insignificant start in Williston this morning.

It started as a light dusting and slowly built in strength.

And even in its early stages workers here were shoveling sidewalks, trying to keep away the slippery conditions.

Our camera was there as some people who are spending their first winter in North Dakota were experiencing the white stuff.

"How do you like the weather here? I hate the weather here. Why? I swore when I came up here I wasn't spending a winter here but somehow I'm still here. And how many winters is this now? Oh, this is my first - I'm from Utah." "What do you think of the weather? It's wonderful. You like this winter? Yeah I do. Where you from? Las Vegas, Nevada. And you came here for the snow? Yeah, I came here just to experience the winter - I hadn't been in winter for 20 years."

Williston has received about two inches of snow today.

And here's a reminder from Minot police - there are many very slippery streets and some vehicles stranded by the ice - so please drive slowly tonight and watch out for stalled cars.
