I remember.

-60 degrees: It took nearly a century, but Minnesota has a new record | Star Tribune

My wife and I lived in Bloomington, where we had a high of -17F that day. My Ford Tempo (what a horrible vehicle!) wouldn't start. My helpful stepfather (a highly capable self-servicer of vehicles) was visiting us, and he was willing to spend an hour under the hood getting it back on track (no garage, out in the open). Anyway, even though I'm mechanically useless, I felt obliged to stand out there and suffer while he worked on our car.

It was bad. Very bad.

-17F isn't the coldest daily high I've seen, but it's probably in my top 10 (I did live in Duluth for a few years...).

I was in St. Paul.
My nose froze, and there is still a 'dead spot' on my nose.
