Reading this article, people who have been here last winter will think I am a crazed maniac when I say there are things to like about winter in North Dakota. I can assume everybody can agree that there are downsides, but don’t make it feel like it is a deathtrap. Believe it or not there are fun things to do in winter her too! If you have ever been skiing in Bottineau you know what I am saying. My friends and I love to build snow forts in the big piles of snow that the plows leave. Even though every single school bus can be covered in snow and there be a 2-hour delay doesn’t mean that there aren’t snow days! My dad and I love to put up a lot of Christmas lights up, (even though they usually don’t ever come down) we love to put a lot of effort in them and they end up looking so pretty!
The high school has a great sledding hill, it is steep and it is so fun to race my family, we go there every year! My friends and I love doing snow fights, the arena being our whole street! Some people haven’t even seen a flurry yet, much less anything! Can you believe that with living in Minot? If you have the right snow you can build a snowman as large as you want to, you have pretty much endless supplies if you get what I mean. If you’re not outside you can watch movies, learn to do something new, such as baking, like my sister did. My family and I love attending Minotauros hockey games, the energy and excitement of them is very fun! You are really able to have fun in the winter time in Minot North Dakota!
