Historic cold shuts Michigan schools; record low temperatures set in Michigan
Worst winter in decades in Minnesota
Kansas to Massachusetts: up to a foot of snow to fall across 1,300 miles (this is going into March)
Travel agent: brutal winter is causing "a certain amount of desperation"

I came back to the Bakken this time for three reasons:
- I had to thank my dad personally -- how generous he has been
- see the changes in the area due to oil and gas
- experience a few days of the winter I remember growing up; someday, global warming will mean the end of all this; and I am getting my wish -- it's going to be really, really cold this weekend; it is currently -14 degrees outside where I am (Williston); the overnight low will be -20.
