If you think Fargo, North Dakota is cold, you would be right. Or at least right half the year. I’m not going to sugar coat it – it can get a bit nippy. Ironically, as cold as North Dakota can get, I’m always coldest when living in Europe, or even in DC. I think partially because I expect everywhere should feel like the tropics after this. But it’s also partially because ND is a dry climate, while other places are much more humid. In Fargo, it’s cold outside, but when you come it, it goes away instantly; in a more humid place, when it’s cold, it sinks nearly to the bone and stays with you for hours – that makes it easier to get sick too. Also, your body can’t feel (assuming there is no wind) anything past minus 28, so if it’s colder than that, who cares, right?
With our trip this summer, diplo-husband always can’t get over how different things look when under a blanket of ice-cold snow. I think it’s part of the charm…
It’s definitely cold enough where Artic Reindeer can munch on whatever it is that they eat since we saw them at Santa’s Village.
One of the best parts of being home for the holidays is that my brother and his family, now that he’s back from deployment, were there are well so lots of playtime for diplo-tot with her cousins. And yes, those are matching pajamas.
