POWERS LAKE, N.D. — When Carolynn Robinson and her husband moved from Washington state to North Dakota to work in the oilfields, they thought it would just be a summer gig.

But the move worked out so well, they decided to stay.

“We’re getting more and more attached to North Dakota,” said Robinson, who moved to the state about two years ago.

Lack of work in their home state prompted them to move to North Dakota.
