We need a
federal agency that could warn people about dangerous weather so they wouldn't get in these predicaments.

How do you become unprepared for snow if you live in North Dakota? In my world, I can actually see the little white flakes falling from the sky.

my family had left fargo on a sunny day with decent temperature. We reached about 15 miles west of jamestown and the weather went from sunny to rain to snow and ice with zero visibility. All within about 1/2 mile. We were one of about 300 cars that were completely immobile between Medina and Cleavland. Their were cars infront and behind us, we couldn't move if we wanted too.
We were literally stuck in our cars for 12 hours...
think about that....not very pleasent.
On the upside we had some blankets, enough gas, ans some food with us. The road crews, the national guard, and everyone how helped out at Medina did a great job and we thank them for their sleepless nights and their hard work.
