April blizzard hits North Dakota

It must be proof of global "warming", and it must be George Bush's fault! From the AP:
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- Officials worked to restore electricity and clear highways after a powerful spring snowstorm swept through the northwestern Plains, leaving four people dead.

More than 4,000 customers remained without power Wednesday night in South Dakota's Black Hills after the storm dumped more than 2 feet of snow, officials said. Some customers in North Dakota could be without electricity until Friday, according to the Mountrail-Williams County Electric Cooperative.

The heaviest snow was reported in the Black Hills, with 24 inches at Lead and Rochford, according to the National Weather Service.
Maybe those polar bears in the Arctic Circle can flee from the oppressive heat of the North Pole and emigrate to the friendlier climes of North Dakota!
