Oil, oil, oil and gas, gas, gas. The saving grace for the Dakotas in this recession has been the Bakken oil fields and I say drill baby drill! What a great way to smash the erroneous theory of peak oil and provide jobs to our neighbors. Not to mention decrease our reliance on the predator states of the Middle East. Great work scientists and others who pushed the development of these fields. I hope things get better for other regions quickly, but I am very thankful this holiday season to be buffeted from this recession by the booming oil and gas industry in ND!

Thanks for reading!
I just have to gush again.
Since we don’t have a snowblower we shovel our driveway and sidewalks. Our neighbors on either side of us both have snowblowers. At least four times this winter they have attacked the snow in our driveway before we could get to it with the shovel…the latest incident was this morning, and I feel very grateful to live next to people like that.
That’s the North Dakota nice that I see.
