Today we have no power because of a snowstorm. I am ready for this week to be over!Stephanie RozsaHow unusual is early October snow in North Dakota ? October 3, 2012 -The spin doctors are trying to tell us that the early snow in North Dakota is "not that weird an occurrence." However, according to the Grand Forks Herald, on average, the first full inch of snow doesn't fall until Nov. 11 in Fargo and Nov. 15 in Grand Forks, N.D.They're talking about ONE inch. But this storm is expected to dump six to 12 inches - of the white stuff on the area.According to the National Weather Service, the potential exists for six to twelve inches of snow across the northern Red River Valley into northwest Minnesota. Records going back to 1940 show that, in the Red River Valley and the Devils Lake Basin, the last time the area received early measurable snow was 62 years ago, on Oct. 2, 1950. Another notable snowstorm in those areas happened on Oct. 7-8, 1985.The weather service defines measurable snow as 1 inch in depth or greater.So, depending on your interpretation of the word, an early October snowstorm may not be "weird." But it certainly is highly unusual.Whatever happened to "global warming"?http://iceagenow.info/2012/10/unusual-early-october-snow-north-dakota/Kenneth LundChristmas in October?
