embrace your grace
It has a Starbucks, which you'd recognize as crucial if you're in the middle of a long haul home from Montana. Other than that, I know little about this city, except as I've been told by the Coen brothers.
I have a friend who lives near there (maybe - she might live in the other Dakota, & isn't it sad that I can't remember). I'll check when I get home tonight & let you know :)
My friend Darci IS in Fargo (or a suburb thereof). She tried to post here, but couldn't get it to work (she's not a blogger). If you'd like to get in touch with her her email address is aggiepants at facebook.com

oh my....sounds like time for some long underwear....smiles
I think young adults should always take a shot at anything that could be a valuable learning experience but I remember watching Weather Channel and wondering why anyone would live in Fargo, which was often the coldest, windiest city on the map! Long underwear will be needed for sure.
As a transplant to Minnesota from TX, my understanding is that the cinematic version captures the essence of the area. Wouldn't be my first choice, but if it has a coo-p and Starbucks, I could make it. Much to be learned living in the cold -- and then there's God's country (the Northwoods of MN) within a half-day's drive! If she's got a sense of humor and a streak of hardiness, she'll manage just fine!
Hey, thanks for your thoughts and your time:>)
