The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) has extended the Travel Alert to north central and northeast North Dakota due to areas of heavy snow and blowing snow causing reduced visibility and snow covered roadways with areas of scattered drifts. This includes the cities of Minot, Devils Lake, Grand Forks and surrounding areas.
As if the summer sun and breath of breeze roused them once more, the bones crackled softly in the morning light.
One could almost glimpse ancient bison rising to their feet, scraping their hooves across the dirt and rotating their mighty heads toward the sky, while their tails flickered rat-a-tat through the dust.

On the surface, Lake George looks like any other North Dakota lake, glistening in the summer sun. But beneath those placid waters may lie critical clues about the region’s climate history.
Known by locals as “Salt Lake,” Lake George is considered to be the deepest natural lake in North Dakota.
Not long ago, a farmer in North Dakota’s Devils Lake Basin watched the farmhouse that had been in the family since the homestead era burn to the ground. It was no accident. The family torched the old home. More than 100 years of memories went up in smoke because there was no way to save the place from rising water. The roads were either washed out or so waterlogged they could not support a house move. Regulations prevented leaving the place in the rising water. Burning it and clearing the rubble was the only option.
COLUMBUS, N.D. (AP) — A state official investigating a large fish kill at a popular reservoir in northwest North Dakota has ruled out pesticides.
Mike Ell, environmental scientist with the state Health Department’s water quality division, said the cause of the kill at Short Creek Reservoir still is not known but there are no detectable concentrations of pesticides in the water.
There’s a large “Bee” at Lake Mitchell but don’t worry: It’s not a threat to humans.
The Lake Mitchell Advisory Committee hopes the SolarBee water-circulation device that was placed in the water May 21 will reduce the summertime algae blooms in a portion of the lake.
