FARGO—A wind and snow mix has created hazardous travel conditions in Fargo and the surrounding area. The DOT has just closed I-29 from Fargo to Grand Forks and no travel is advised in Northeast North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota, where conditions are much worse than they are in the southern Valley Wednesday night. Fargo has been somewhat lucky during this storm, there hasn't been a whole lot of snow and high winds have been blocked for the most part. Outside of Fargo without buildings to block the wind, it's blizzard conditions with very poor visibility.

COLFAX, N.D. - A North Dakota farmer and gravel hauler can now call himself an inventor. Tim Hudson says he developed a new and better way to spread gravel. Hudson solves problems.
