Minnesota Town Hits 54 Below Zero
By The Associated Press
Temperatures plummeted across the eastern half of the nation Monday, approaching an all-time record in northern Minnesota and freezing the Gulf Coast as a river of Arctic air pushed southward.
Thermometers registered a low of 54 degrees below zero at Embarrass, Minn.
"You keep living, but it gets old after a while," said Christine Mackai, the town clerk for the community of 691 people in northeast Minnesota.
Apparently here on the shores of Platte Lake it got down to around -35Farenheit but we don't know for sure cause we bottomed out the thermometer. BRRRRRRRRRR!
