So today happens to be the perfect day for making a lot of ice, as in ice-fishing kind of ice. That's the positive side of a really cold day. How do North Dakotans survive the cold? We just find a lot of fun things to do indoors - like visiting museums, art galleries, movie theathers and shopping malls. Sometimes, we head to the court or arena for some hot sports action - like watching the Dakota Wizards, UND Fighting Sioux or Bismarck Bobcats - all teams playing at home this weekend.
One really nice thing about North Dakota weather is that we truly experience all seasons here - from breathless heat to breath-freezing cold. We enjoy the adventure that comes with winter, spring, summer and fall - from snowmobiling to mountain biking. Maybe this is one of the reasons North Dakota cities are consistently ranked among the healthiest in the U.S.
