The Natural Phenomenon In North Dakota That Only Happens During Wintertime

It’s not even December yet but North Dakota is already seeing the full effects of winter. This state has a bit of a reputation for having pretty harsh winters, and it is well earned. The temperature has already dipped to the single digits this season and snow has been falling since October for much of the state. Some of us have even already seen a special natural phenomenon that only shows itself in wintertime. It’s a beautiful part of nature that we in North Dakota get to enjoy – even if it means it’s super cold!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
