It’s cold in North Dakotaland. The high yesterday was 12 and the low last night was -2. It is simply too early to be this cold.
Fortunately, there my colleagues over at The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota have a number of reasons to stay inside, by the fire, and warm on Veterans’ Day weekend.

Realizing that this is the start of a long winter, you might as well also go and pre-order a copy of The Beast from our friends at Ad Astra Comix.
If that’s still not enough, do check out this long essay from a veteran of World War I originally published in North Dakota Quarterly in 1919.
