On This Day In History, Tower Minnesota Set a State Record with Temperatures at 60 Below Zero
I am the first to admit that I am not a fan of winter, I will take a white sandy beach over frozen sand and snow any day, but I cannot even begin to imagine a 60 degree below zero day ever!
Some of you may have been around 20 years ago today to remember hearing about the record breaking cold in Tower MN, 60 degrees below zero! That was the actual temperature not including the windchill. As many Minnesotan's know their is a rivalry between Tower and Embarrass over which place is colder, an on that day a weather watcher in Embarrass was not able to get temperatures because 2 of his three thermometers went on the fritz.
You have got to love a town that prides itself for breaking a record like that, I need an electric blanket just thinking about it!
