It’s Colder In Minnesota Right Now Than It Is In Antarctica

Frigid weather has officially set in for Minnesotans. Following a snowstorm that delayed or closed schools across the state, the extreme cold has led to even more closures. Schools and businesses – and even the U.S. Postal Service – have closed, citing dangerously low temperatures as an excuse to keep the doors closed. It’s so cold in Minnesota, in fact, that it’s actually warmer in Antarctica! Read on to learn more about the forecast, both in the Land of 10,000 Lakes and at the South Pole.
