I spent many years in Grand Forks, North Dakota. You don’t have a clue what a cold winter feels like unless you’ve experienced it in the Dakotas. Un****ingbelievable. 

And for extreme masochism, how the heck does someone run a livestock farm in the Dakotas?  I think calving is generally in March.  Ya gotta be kidding me!  Having to tend to livestock in a Dakota winter?

This one old farmer told me about a winter storm in 1966.  He had a rope tied from his front door to his barn.  He said he couldn't see 5 feet in front of him.  That's how he got to his livestock.

I saw an article on coldest US cities (obviously have to be of a certain population size).

1. Fairbanks, Alaska
2. Grand Forks, ND
3. Bismarck, ND
4. Fargo, ND
5. Aberdeen, SD

I saw the signs for Grand Forks once when I visited my then girl friend who lived in Fargo.  That's getting up there.
