The 5 Best Things About February In North Dakota!
Let's face it. This has been a longggg winter so far. We're a little more than halfway done with January and it seems like it should be March already with all the early snow we received.
Well, it won't be long and February and Groundhogs day will come rolling in. No matter what that rodent has in store for us weather-wise for the rest of the winter, here are 5 things you have to look forward to during the month of February.
1. The Typical "Coldest" month of the year is over!
January is normally the coldest month in the state of North Dakota. Yes, early February can be chilly as well, but in general, the worst is behind us.
2. It's the last full month of Winter!
The official first day of Spring is Monday, March 20th. And with February being the shortest month, that day will be here a lot sooner than we think. If I had to bet, we'll be fishing the river out of a boat by then. Nothing says spring, like the mile-long lines at the Fox Island boat ramp or Hazelton.
3. There are a ton of fun holidays in February!
With exception of Valentine's day. Sorry about that Ladies. A holiday I dread each and every year. It seldom seems to go as planned, but enough of my problems. Besides Ground Hog's day, Valentine's day is on the 14th, we have Presidents Day on the 20th and Mardi Gras is on the 21st. Somebody alert my liver. No shortage of things to celebrate during the month of February.
4. It's the best time to go on vacation and escape winter.
If you do find yourself going stir-crazy this month, why not get away? Plenty of cheap airline destinations are available right now. Vegas? Florida? Arizona? Just a short flight away from Bismarck.
5. It's Prime-Time for Winter fun!
Maybe a little skiing at Huff Hills? Last chance to hit the outdoor rinks. North Dakota state hockey tournaments. February is a great month for ice fishing. Take advantage of all the great outdoors here in NoDak!
