Despite the blizzard, people were out and about braving the conditions. Some businesses closed their doors due to the weather but for others, it was business as usual.

Even though parts of town saw white-out conditions, cars managed to make their way to stores that stayed open. Grocery and Big Box stores like Target stayed open but lines were significantly shorter. While many people stayed indoors, those who ventured out say they've been hanging in there.

Len Vonasek, who is braving the blizzard said, "We are out and about a little bit today. We're picking up some groceries and a few things we need so we can get home and hunker down a little bit and stay out of the cold."

Grand Forks City offices closed because of the blizzard. Only essential and emergency personnel were on duty Thursday.

Several daycares and several wellness centers also closed because of the blizzard.
