I was in MN in Jan 1994, playing in a band. I think it was Mankato, but I know it was the home of the Viking's training camp, and the week after the Cowboys knocked them out of the playoffs. I expected them to be upset about that, since we were from TX. Little did we know that TX had recently acquired a hockey team. >_>
It was -52F when we got done playing that night. They were saying it was the coldest they had seen in a decade. It was definitely the coldest this TX boy had ever seen, or ever wished to see again. I remember when I shut the car door, the bar that connected the inside handle to the door latch snapped in two. Had to roll down the window, and open the door from the outside after that.
Happy to have lows in the teens today, and one of the few chances I'll have this decade to pull out my 20 year old coat from that adventure.
