Somebody posted a story from The Onion the other day, I hadn't been there for a while and was looking at some old 'news' from our state. I came across a story from Apr 23 1997 about the flooding along the Red River http://www.theonion.com/articles/north-dakota-flooding-reminds-people-of-north-dako,4308/ I was reading it again, and laughing. Then I got to the last sentance: Once flood waters recede, North Dakota is expected to return to obscurity until February 2012, when all of its residents will perish in an ice storm. February 2012?!? So we have less than 18 days left? Wait a minute... It says residents. So maybe if I just change my residence to another state for a few months I should be safe, right? Couldn't they have picked a date way in the future?
