Minot to Williston another 10inches today.
Most of Minnesota was in that situation in 2021, starting about a year ago. The entire western half of the state is now drought-free, and the eastern half is now only listed as "abnormally dry." Rivers are flowing higher again and lakes are filling up. Just what we needed.We are still in a very dry situation locally.
That sounds like the kind of conditions that kills most of the birds that don't have trees to retreat to. In the earlier 2000s we had 2 rough winters back-to-back...it was a quite a rebuild for several years after. It was only the ones that had access to trees that survived to repopulate. I hope it is not as bad as I am imagining it might be. And this is just as we thought we were clear of the worst of the snow season.Buddy in MT reported 24” and 40 MPH winds for 3 days. Up to 40 today but chance for more this weekend.
Maybe crop fields blew open too, allowing access to food…What a slap in the face.....went to the farm after I had been snowed in for 4 days and the area (20) acres I am going to burn down and reseed with high quality seed mix for pheasant habitat was completely blown clear of any snow whatsoever and it's a low flat area......well that's a foot up the rear as I was hoping I would get some good moisture there.
