North Dakota is home to 4 unique seasons, or some say 2 (winter and construction season). In the winter, it’s extremely cold. You must be very careful while traveling. In the summer it’s very humid. Most would say it’s hot, but in all reality, it’s well below normal. Check out also this John Oliver (HBO) video:
The fall can change to winter in a days time, or a moment’s notice some years. When the first blizzard hits, you normally don’t see green grass for many months. And the spring is very refreshing. After spending months indoors, it’s nice to enjoy nice 50-60 degree weather.
The state is considered to be split into two nationalities. In the western part of the state, you have a large percentage of German backgrounds. Many settled along the Missouri River and spanned out from there. In the eastern part of the state, we have a predominantly Scandinavian background. For the most part, they’re Norwegian. I swear most of the “Ole and Lena” jokes came from here. And everything here is country furniture.
