RE-RUN. Things look the same for this week as cold and snow give way to a deeper chill. Temperatures on Saturday will be stuck at -10 for highs and the -20s for lows with a good chance of wind chills hitting -45.
FISH THAT LAKE. Lake Agassiz once stretched from near Hudson Bay, where it was dammed by ice, all the way down to Lake Traverse along the MN-SD border. When the levee broke and the lake drained into the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, it raised sea levels by 3 to 9 feet and caused global cooling on a massive scale.
NOT HUNGRY. Of all the weird things dogs eat, grapes shouldn’t be one of them. Grapes and raisins contain an as-yet-unidentified toxin that is harmful to dogs, so keep your four-legged hunting buddy away from the produce section and out of the Sun Maid box.
