  • It was always very nice when I visited. I went to Dickenson a few times while in college in Billings, MT.

  • Well the winter temps can be pretty nasty. It gets below zero a lot. The summer can get hot. It's been over 90 degrees a couple of days this week. I'm not on medicaid, but I know a couple of people who are & I thought that it covered 100%. You could try this website & see if it helps:

  • I grew up in South Dakota, different, but similar. I've never been to Grand Forks, but I do know the city is prone to flooding. I would DEFINITELY get flood insurance. Also, I my good friend lived in Bismark for years and she said the wind was crazy. I would recommend getting some good quality winter clothes. My mother did that for me when we moved to SD from Florida. It was really helpful because I six and not used to the cold (COLD!!) weather. It would also be a good idea to get a few things for your car. Snow tires and a block heater would be great. Also, kind of a little thing, but a winter survival kit and an ice scraper are really good ideas.

  • I live close to GF... it's nice here, but cold. I tend to stay in as much as possible during the winter, lol. Summers are nice and so are the people.
