Another interesting article in the paper today about the oil boom and its effects on western North Dakota: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/26/us/no ... ml?_r=1&hp Do not expect to find a motel room within 150 miles of Williston, from what I read.
Yesterday I heard this report on the radio:http://minnesota.publicradio.org/displa ... perty-tax/ Lots happening out on the high plains.
the mobile home manufacturer here in Watertown is working overtime making appartment complexes based on the double-wide chassis. they have the finished units with 12 fficiency appartments in each 'double wide' lined up by the dozens on the edge of Watertown, hauling them North as weather permits. the mass of young males leaving to head to the oil fields has also created a HUGE demand for workers here in Watertown.
