Steve, those lines are telephone lines, I think they ran alongside the railroad tracks.

Dad was a pastor at a rural church near Arena North Dakota.  I was born in Bismark in 1964.  I dont remember that, but have seen pictures similar!

There was also a book written about this and a couple other storms.  Don't remember the name but could probably google it, one author was a local man.

It dumped a lot on us that March also.  The police and Firemen (as they were known then) were the only people going to work for a couple of days.  They had snowmobiles ferrying them back and forth from home to work.  And then we had the highest river stage and floods that spring also.  I was a junior and we got out of school to sandbag.  NEVER want to see that again.
