NDAWN Director Daryl Ritchison says farmers and ranchers in western North Dakota may not have received as much moisture where they wanted in last week’s spring blizzard due to the windy conditions. “I have more than 50 weather cameras in western and central North Dakota; most of the fields and pastures have very little snow on them,” says Ritchison. “I had a long conversation with a rancher who was extremely disappointed that he won’t get hardly any benefits from this moisture, because it was blown into piles. That’s the case for everyone. Fields and pastures will clear much quicker than folks think.”
