Bone-chilling cold, high winds and blinding snow Thursday paralyzed much of the upper Midwest and Plains, closing roads and schools and causing at least six deaths. In Minnesota, with the windchill factor near 70 below, Gov. Arne Carlson closed all public schools, and many private schools followed his lead. President Clinton declared a major disaster in nearly half of the state. Local snow-removal budgets are busted and the Legislature is considering a $20-million emergency appropriation.
