Through snow, mud and miles

An ice and snow storm rolled into North Dakota late April 22. Over two days, icy rains, heavy, wet snow and winds up to 60 miles per hour wreaked havoc on western and north central North Dakota. The storm affected 14 electric cooperatives, toppling more than 4,000 poles, downing distribution and high-voltage transmission lines, and damaging substations, with the brunt of damage sustained in the northwestern quadrant of the state and areas served by Burke-Divide Electric Cooperative, McLean Electric Cooperative, McKenzie Electric Cooperative and Mountrail-Williams Electric Cooperative.

Local food truck vendors serve the gamut of palates, with unique and mouth-watering bites, at food truck festivals across the state.

The face of Food Trucks

It’s not beans and biscuits feeding hungry cowboys anymore.

The chuckwagons of the Old West have evolved to serve the gamut of palates. From barbecue sundaes and pulled pork parfaits, to Mexican-German fusion chili and the Fargo Fillie, the modern food truck has found a permanent parking spot in America’s food scene.
