June 6, 2009

This is what Dickinson, ND looked like 5 years ago today.  Other parts of western North Dakota also recorded snow that very cold June day.  During that week, Fargo recorded 5 straight days with a high in the 50s, the only time on record there will such a stretch of 50s during the month of June.  That summer finished well below average in North Dakota and much of the northern part of the United States.
