Neighbors Virgil Bruehl, left, and Sandy McLean take a break from shoveling to discuss the weather on Thursday afternoon in north Bismarck. "We have to keep the neighborhood cleaned up," McLean said. "And get some fresh air," Bruehl added. Both men have seen a few North Dakota winters but take each snowstorm in stride. "I found my trusty old shovel and said, 'Baby, you and I are going to work," McLean said of the day's work clearing sidewalks and driveways.
