We're just now emerging from the second big blizzard this year. We didn't get as much snow over this one as we did during the Christmas blizzard exactly one month ago, but the snow seemed to be blowing just as intensely. I took some video, and climbed partway up the bluff to get some of the video, but the wind was simply ferocious, my eyes were getting blasted with snow and bentonite dust, and I had some concern I would go for a ride down the steep slope through the sagebrush.
We made a run to Dickinson mid-day on Monday to make it to an appointment, to use the gym, and to restock on food. The road was generally clear, though the north side of I-94 in both directions occasionally had a minor snowdrift; it would be serious if it were bigger and softer, but these were short and seemingly well-packed. The snow was blowing to an insane degree. There were times when I could look out across the road and it looked like we were driving on a cloud; it was no cloud but the snow blowing in an unbroken layer across the road. In some places, it blew up like a fog. It sounded like sand as it blew against the side of the car. We survived no problem because the road was actually dry. The same cannot be said for city streets anywhere.
