Record Snowfall Hits the Red River Valley
Fargo set a one-day snowfall record with more than nine inches of snow in a 24 hour period
Record snowfall in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota is mostly to blame for making travel difficult in the region.
As much as 10 inches of new snow fell in the Red River Valley with Fargo setting a single-day record on Monday of 9.2 inches.
Students in some school districts had an extended winter break because of the dangerous travel conditions.
Dozens of other school districts delayed the start of classes.
Grand Forks County offices, including the courthouse, as well as city offices in Grand Forks were closed.
