The thing that most North Dakotan's can agree on is that when the white stuff hits the ground, so does the IQ of some of the drivers in the state.

If your area gets a significant amount of snow and you do not have to be out and about, then stay home.

The National Weather Service Bismarck has a breakdown of when travel may be disrupted the most in different parts of the state.

There could be a break in the snow Wednesday night before a second round of accumulating snow impacts the area Thursday into Thursday night. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ndwx</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; NWS Bismarck (@NWSBismarck) <a href="">October 24, 2023</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Staying off the roads unless you have to be on them helps by:

  • Preventing you from adding to an already stressful day for first responders.
  • You don't run the risk of becoming an unfortunate statistic.
  • Those people who do have to be out don't have to worry about Looky-Lou's making the roads more dangerous.
  • Not requiring plants to work as hard to replace the oxygen that could be used for those who can properly critically think about someone other than themselves.

Be on the lookout for those who think that they are the main character in the story and things things like common sense are not needed.

If you do need to hit the roads while road conditions are a bit iffy, please be careful, make sure you have winter equipment along with you, and check out ND Roads before you head out.
