The biggest reason that you can’t send NO homes to ND is
drastic difference of weather proofing. ND can be -60 with wind chill, where NO homes are probably insulated to a what?, R-15 value?
BTW, I’ve met Jim Clayton and he is a great guy.

Yep, after the 2008 June floods in Iowa, some of the FEMA trailers came up here for the flood victims to use, and those that were still in them by winter had problems. Though the insulation was bad, they were small enough and the furnace had enough power to stay warm inside, it costed a bit. But the plumbing was run underneath, and not being an insulated and heated space the water pipes under the trailer would freeze. I think some were modified to avoid that, but it was even more work. They are terribly crappy to begin with.

Actually, I have seen -60 without the wind chill in ND (unofficially, officially, the NWS showed -50, but they were pretty close to town). The wind chill was -146 (military wind chill chart). Last winter up here was pretty mild. The rumor is that it was thanks to all the new folks praying it would warm up.

Next winter might be more normal (for here).
