FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- The weather can vary greatly this time of year. On this date, in 1996, we were in the grips of a raging blizzard that dropped 13.5 inches of snow in Fargo and 11 inches in Grand Forks. We saw winds gusting over 50mph.

That storm, in addition to heavy rains in the fall and several more major storms, is what set us up for massive flooding in the spring of 1997 that caused $3.5 billion damage and wiped out entire neighborhoods in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks and caused evacuations and devastating flooding in Fargo Moorhead.
