High winds, snow forecast for Fargo-Moorhead region


Hoo boy. Here we go. The Fargo Forum says: “The National Weather Service is warning the Fargo-Moorhead region to brace for snow and strong winds that could result in snow accumulations of 6 inches or more in some areas. … Also, the wind, with gusts up to 35 mph, could cause a number of nasty issues, including power outages and downed tree branches, the weather service said in a report Tuesday morning, Oct. 9.”

Checking in on Monday’s CD8 debate. KSTP’s Eric Chaloux reports: “Two men running for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional seat, DFL-backed Joe Radinovich and the GOP candidate Pete Stauber, shared their emotional stories of coming face-to-face with gun violence when asked in a debate how they would tackle gun the issue in America.”

Nobody drives here anymore — roads are too crowded! The Star Tribune’s Janet Moore reports: “Minnesota’s infrastructure — including its roads, public transit, airports, wastewater systems and drinking water — earned a grade of ‘C’ from the American Society of Civil Engineers. … In a report released Tuesday, the state’s road system earned a dismal D-plus grade, saying Minnesota’s roads are in ‘poor condition.’

At least one Minnesotan has a problem with Amazon’s pay change. The New York Times’ Karen Weise writes: “…[I]n Amazon warehouses across the country, many longtime workers are fuming that — based on the information they have received so far — they may end up making thousands of dollars less a year. … Near Minneapolis, Katy Iber, who handles returned products at an Amazon warehouse, works the night shift. Her region has a tight local labor market, so she already makes more than $15 an hour. … But it was also ending monthly attendance and productivity bonuses, known as the Variable Compensation Plan, or V.C.P. And she would no longer be granted valuable Amazon shares. The trade-off meant she’d be losing money, she said.”

    I hope I’m not being too provocative by stating that weather-wise, this fall has sucked.
