53 Years Ago, North Dakota Was Hit With The Worst Blizzard In History

The recent snow and extreme cold temperatures in North Dakota have practically shut down the state. Canceled school, closed businesses, and even no mail delivery. It’s been colder than the North Pole in the last week, and we’re certainly all feeling it across the plains! Despite this crazy polar vortex weather, we can be glad it’s not as bad as it was 53 years ago. It was 1966 that ND saw its worst blizzard in history – and it’ll be one that’s tough to beat for probably years down the road.

Were you there for the Blizzard of 1966? Did any of your family members experience it? They would certainly have a tale to tell that we can be glad we aren’t experiencing today.

Here is a list of some of the other notable, heavy blizzards that have hit North Dakota over the years.
