CHILLIN’ Temperatures back below zero all day today and tomorrow along with some gusty winds will make this another inside weekend. We should start to see some relief in the coming days, though highs in the teens will remain well below normal. We’ve got some fun outdoor facts and a long-range laugh for you to get through it all in today’s Three Things.

NET GUNNING. Check out this week’s installment of the G&F’s weekly news bite, North Dakota Outdoors, on how surveyors capture, collar and track elk throughout western ND.
CRAYFISH DOZE. A young fan of DEO asked if lobsters sleep, so we got curious (after saying they did) and did some online research to back up our claims (shoot first, right?). It turns out not only do the edibles in the tank at the local restaurant sleep much like mammals, but so do crayfish, making it that much easier for a smallie to sneak up on them!
ANY OPTIMISM. Just for a Saturday laugh, check out Accuweather.com and its 90 day forecast, which, yes, we know is about as accurate as a broken clock, but at this point in time (and with today’s highs), we’ll take any signs of warmth – right around Apr. 1.
