'Scary' drought in N.D. persists through scattered weekend moisture
BISMARCK -- Jim Diepolder says the drought gripping most of western North Dakota isn't just serious. He calls it eerie, scary even.
"People here have been seeding for close to a month now and the crop is not up," said the Willow City farmer and head of the U.S. Durum Growers Association. "It's just sitting there. The bottom line is, it's pretty scary. ...It's the driest it's been in 100 years."
