Minus 60 Degree Wind Chill Predicted

January 29, 2018  --  Hello Everyone! Hope you're having an awesome Tuesday... no matter what your weather is like! 

We went on a trip to Harvey today and experienced A LOT of blowing snow... also ice and built-up snow across the road at times. 

This was not a good day to be traveling anywhere in this area! The temperature got lower as we traveled back to Carrington... minus 20 degrees around 3pm... and by 12Midnight should be -32 with a windchill of -53. 

The fact that there is no school today or tomorrow (Wednesday) in Carrington tells you how serious this weather is. 

If you live in Arizona, Texas, Florida, etc.... you can see why a lot of snowbirds migrate your way at this time of year! 

Thanks to each of you for dropping by Carrington News today. We'd love to hear about your weather (and pictures) if you have time.

Sunrise on the North Dakota Plains... near Carrington, ND

Hello Everyone! Hope your Saturday is treating you well! 

Today in Carrington it's a rather frosty day with fog crystalizing on the trees. It makes for beautiful pictures but rather slippery roads around the area. Right now it's 16 degrees with practically no wind... which is unusual and very nice. 

The Lions Club, an awesome service club here in Carrington, sponsored a French Toast & Sausage Feed at the Senior Center this morning which benefits the Senior Center, the Carrington Youth Center and the City Library. 

Headlocks is having a dart tournament at 2pm as part of their Grand Opening Weekend... with DUJ Music&Karaoke tonight at 8:30pm.
 Also, tonight starting at 5pm there is a gala event taking place at the Armory... Casino Night! It is sponsored by the St. Alexious Health-Carrington Medical Center and is their annual fundraising event. 

If you don't live in Carrington, what are some fun events happening around YOUR area? We'd love to hear from you! 😊

ND House of Representatives Wants to Do Something about Robocalls! Hooray!

Kudos to anyone who can do something about robocalls! These robocalls are so aggravating! Besides all the unwanted ad/nuisance calls, I've had calls saying I was in trouble with the IRS, that I might be arrested if I didn't return the call, that a relative needed money for an emergency... and more! 

Now I don't answer a phonecall if it's from out of state. I figure if it's important the caller will leave a message. Now, however, I'm getting robocalls with the ND prefix!!! 

Think about what this means to a business. For example, my husband can't ignore calls the way I do because he gets business calls from all over the United States. He has to answer all his calls in case it's an important business call. I hear him hanging up on robocalls all day long. There are so many of them!!! (As I'm typing this, my husband just got a robocall saying our Google business listing is in jeopardy... which isn't true.)

 I hope something can be done about this because being on the "no call" list definitely doesn't work anymore! By the way, how are YOU handling your robocalls?
