As I watched all the school closings last night, my wife wondered what happens in a city like Fargo, ND.
At noon today, it's currently -22F, with a wind chill of -39F in Fargo. Far colder than Milwaukee's balmy -8F.
33 of 38 Fargo-metro-area schools are OPEN for learning. Amazing.
How is that possible? The greater Fargo area has 200,000 population. 48% are of swarthy German heritage.
Maybe they have a system of tunnels that bring children from homes to schools. Do they have a fleet of supercars that have special battery technology that works great in the cold? Or they don't love their children, and send them to wait at the bus stop to freeze.
Or are they just way tougher than Wisconsinites?
Maybe their German population came from a heartier area of Germany: the Toughbergh region.
