MISSOURI VALLEY, Iowa -- Snow is one thing. A blizzard is a whole, 'nuther something else. You need to triple the size of the band if you're going to close schools properly in weather like this.
As was the case throughout the heartland, there was no school in Missouri Valley on Monday.
That, of course, meant Superintendent Brent Hoesing had some vocal work to do.
And with the size of this snow and all that wind blowing it every which way, he needed a little support this time around. There's only so much one man can do.
