"Rare weather pattern?" Heh! It's January in Minnesota. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, especially one who thinks man-made global warming is a hoax, to realize that this is typical for Minnesota. Going back to my childhood.

Friends..it doesn't have to be this way. Six month winter, sky high taxes, horrible traffic and road construction and monstrous mosquitos . Bail ASAP. That is all.

This may not be rare to be cold in MN but for the likes of people in St. Louis this is pretty rare. So the cold weather is dipping much lower then usual.

Will someone please take the time to explain to the masses that the wind chill temp is not the true temp. If it's -10 deg. F with a 30 mph wind, your car is still only -10.

jhb8426: However, the wind chill effect on bare skin is more significant than what you call the true temperature.

Wally_99: Did you read the article? This is far from normal weather in January. And it has nothing to do with how one views global warming. You're probably misremembering your childhood. I'm 71 and I can't remember many Januaries as brutal as this one.

1994 was colder but at least it didn't snow every other day.
