Lack of Snow

Most of you likely remember that we have had three Octobers in a row with a fairly significant snow storm in North Dakota.  I mention this because, the 4.2 inches that fell last October 20 has been the highest snow total of this season in Fargo. The Octobers of 2018 and 2019 both had storms that recorded the highest storm totals of those snow seasons for some parts of the area but not in Fargo.     Well, this year, if unless we get a late season big snow, for the first time on record the worst snow storm of a season in Fargo will have occurred in October.  So, if you thought this past winter was pretty quiet for snow storms in the southern Red River Valley, it wasn’t your imagination.
