Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Minneapolis and St. Paul public schools are closed today. I’m getting old, my memory isn’t what it was. I remember looking forward to snow days, but did we get cold days off school? My sister claims there were a couple of occasions when the country kids didn’t have to come in, only the town kids, but I wonder if that was due to bad roads for the school busses more than low temperatures?
I’m having trouble squaring school closures for cold, record setting cold in Chicago, freezing temperatures for 75% of the nation, with The New Hotness’ claim global warming will destroy the world in 12 years.
Although if it does, I suppose women and minorities will be hardest hit, so I’ve got that going for me.
It’s science, because shut up.
