My favorite part of the article:

Quote:
North Dakota State College freshman Katie Woodbury was driving from the school in Fargo to her family's farm in Stanley, in northwest North Dakota, when road conditions forced her take shelter at a church in Medina.
"It was scary _ I was talking to myself the whole time," she said of her drive. "I just want to get home and see my mom and dad and the 13 new piglets at the farm."


I was at Minot AFB in the early 70s, and I'm not sorry to be in the San Francisco Bay Area nowadays.

What's really scary is that you CAN express the percentage of people stranded and not sound really silly - .12% of the population of ND

The same white-out conditions created a 20 car pileup in a tiny community in Saskatchewan just north of ND.
Conditions turned from bad to really bad in under a minute. Glad I wasn't on the road that day.
