Deering Digs Out After Blizzard

News

Navigating the roads in western North Dakota is a lot easier, now that the wind has died down.

For some rural communities, today was the first chance to start digging out since the blizzard started.

Tim Olson reports from Deering.

(Tim Olson, KX News) Let’s call it the calm after the storm.

The scene in Deering, North Dakota was picturesque Thursday afternoon. But for Myron Mogard, it also looked like a lot of work.

(Myron Mogard, Deering Street Maintenance) “It’s gonna be a long winter.”

(Tim Olson, KX News) Mogard is in charge of street maintenance in Deering, just northeast of Minot.

And he’s got plenty on his plate today.

(Mogard) “I don’t think I’ve seen it any worse than this!”

(Olson) Now that the wind has stopped howling, it’s the Bobcat’s turn to make some noise.

(Mogard) “You can’t do nothing about it so you might as well deal with it I guess – all you can do.”

(Olson) For the last three days, the main roads into and out of Deering were coated in snow drifts. Even semis like this one couldn’t push through.

(Mogard) “It was pretty much impassable.”

(Olson) But the path has been cleared – and now it’s back to normal…

(Mogard) “Well, as normal as it can be, I guess!”

(Olson) And hey – at least it’s looks nice, right?
