Down Under, Sensations and Shangri-la was all under one roof. A bad winter's day haven back in the day.

Nothing quite like coming out of Down Under after bucks and the sun is still shining, the kids are playing, and you're thinking "maybe I should have done a little more with my day...";)

They played HS hockey games in Bemidji for Hockey Day Minnesota with a temp of -27 to start the first game.

And at least one reported case of frostbite.  We have an employee in the region that I work in got frostbite in 6 minutes in the deicing bucket because the flight had to go.

What is the standard?   -40?  -50?  -60?   If you stay outside a couple minutes longer -40 can kill you just like -50.   If you're going to determine what is acceptable, then create a standard.   Of course, then the schools would say we don't have any days left to give, so we need students to be there.   

I had to take work off on Tuesday because they canceled school for the whole district. They canceled Wednesday before 12 noon. The funny thing, I don't think it's much warmer today. It's still minus 34.

I agree, if you're not careful, it doesn't take much to freeze to death in this weather.

Does anyone remember the buck pitcher tradition actually starting at the Mr. Spud or was I on too many hallucinogens?

yes...the Spud...one of our buddies would go at noon to get a table...the rest of us showed up around 2 or 3.  It made that night's dinner at Wilkerson  almost edible.

Kinda surprised Billy held it together long as he did.

2-4-1's at the Antique from 7 p.m.-8 p.m.

Yah, school closed for several/many days I believe the GF Herald said so the "wussification" of America as one person posted started well before this week. :silly:

Mondays I believe.  Wednesday Long Island Teas at the Bridge, Barleycorn post 1988 or so,  Thursdays 35 cent drinks at the Spud, Fridays buck pitchers at the Spud, Crackers over the by Colony was fit into the week somewhere, academics optional.

Remember the saying in 1972 and prior "If you can go and die for your country, you should be able to have a beer", Vietnam era. Kinda of made sense to most, until it really happened.

In 1973, when Mn dropped the legal drinking age to 18, the biggest local crowds were in EGF.  UND crowd became of age overnight by crossing the Red River. EGF built to accommodate, and competition for business was teaching the kids (now adults) a lesson in capitalism - drink specials as eluded to in recent posts, and $1 pitchers, Antique had $.10 beer pours & 2 for 1's specials. Some bars in EGF would get so packed you could barely get out. ND side had even some 3 for 1 specials, lots of 2 for 1's, on and on. ND bars became more aggressive, were getting busted for serving minors, cops would walk in and immediately start checking cards on customers - fine under age customers.

I bartended at the Peanut Bar at the Regency Inn in East Grand Forks. Our Thursday Ladies night special varied between 3 and 5 FREE drinks for ladies. Don't think you could do that today.

Absolutely, can't forget the popular free drink specials for the ladies!

There was a blizzard a few years back in Colorado Springs.  Barely anyone was out, but my friend that I met at UND and I went to a local bar. One other customer there so we started chatting. He was a UND grad too.  Not surprising the 3 people at a bar during a blizzard were from UND.

UND and area public schools were closed again today 2-4-19. Snow plows out full force this morning. More snow Wednesday.

Is this the year that ends the relatively dry cycle and sees significant flooding for the first time in a while?

Still too early to tell, right?
