Not sure what the east coast has to do with drilling in Western ND.
I am smack dab in the middle of ND for the last 15 years, I can tell you this winter in the bakken was nothing compared to the last three.
Also I am interested in what part of MN you live at where it is 80 degrees in March, as we have a hunting camp in the cloquet MN area and in March we
are usual still playing in the snow.

This winter was not nearly as mild as last....people on the east coast would agree....I was golfing last year on this date here in Minnesota and it
was 80 degrees...St Patrick's day, 2012.....so I might be a day off.
I don't know what the temp was in Cloquet on that date, Hinkley is the temperature border between the Cities and Northern Minnesota but I'm sure it
wasn't that different....for 10 years Cloquet was the nearest place for me to buy normal groceries. (don't want to narrow it down from there)
We are talking about January 2013 production being effected by snow not cold.
One of my wells was not effected but I'm sure those waiting on fracking were, in fact I have it on good authority that they were and especially those
wells that are miles down twisting dirt roads not hook up to pipes and rely solely on trucks to transport the oil.
