Record Snowfall in North Dakota
_____________________________

.
4 Dec 07 - Eastern North Dakota was bracing for as much as 9 inches of new snow on Tuesday, after record snowfall in Grand Forks and Fargo over the weekend.

The Grand Forks and Fargo regions could get up to 9 inches of snow, with the southern Red River Valley getting up to 6 inches, forecasters said.

Some areas of eastern North Dakota already had half a foot of snow on the ground at midday, the weather service said.

The weather service said the 7.4 inches of snow Saturday in Fargo topped the record 2.8 inches for the date set in 1985, and the 0.67 inches of precipitation it brought topped the 0.48-inch record set in 1909.

The 6.4 inches at the Grand Forks airport Saturday also set a record for the date in that city, breaking the previous mark of 0.7 inches in 1990.

               The headline for this article in USA Today said blandly
               "North Dakota getting more wintry weather"

               Now, I don't read USA Today all that often so I don't 
               know whether they slant the news toward global warming
               or not. But I do wonder why the headline didn’t mention
               record snow? I’m guessing that if there had been record 
               heat, the words would have been plastered across 
               the top of the page.
