This from the City of Bismarck late afternoon on Tuesday 12/14

Starting Wednesday, December 15, 2021 after 8:00 am, the intersection of Washington Street and Rosser Avenue traffic signal will be out of service for repairs due to damage caused by a contractor working in the area. All traffic movements will be reduced to one lane on each approach to the intersection.

During peak traffic periods, drivers can anticipate longer than normal delays and congestion on Washington Street and Rosser Avenue.  

Drivers are asked to modify their travel routes and seek alternate routes.

Your patience is greatly appreciated!

So that's gonna be rough.  I'm very familiar with this area of Bismarck and knowing this...I will be far far away until they get that straightened out. Seriously, be warned.


How about other things to worry about during the holiday season?

Speaking of being warned...got any unknown holiday company coming to your place?

Here's an easy way to check if someone in your holiday house has a warrant for their arrest...

It's called ND Public Records.org and the good news is...I came out clean!

Thing is, I should be just the guy investigating my daughter's new fella.  But straight up- I would never ever do that.  The only way I need to know this guy (let's call him Steve), is what I see in him as a man, and where things progress from here.  Might be my only daughter's guy, but it's her call all the way. So far, a heck of a guy.

But y'know, if you're a "put your nose in someone's business" sorta person then go ahead and snoop at ND Records dot org.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
