Probably the -40 degree windchills that happen at least once a year here in MN.

Crying or Very sad

When I was in Jr High...ages ago...my Norwegian gym teacher thought it would be great to get us out cross country skiing for gym. We were out at 8:30 am and the air temp was -15, the windchill was -50.

It was not fun.

Don't remember the exact temperature, but felt like my eyeballs were freezing. That was cold.

Post Bemidji 
Don't recall the year (late 70's?), or the temperature, but it was over 30 below, I believe. Straight temperature, not wind chill. According to the weather records, the coldest it got while I lived there was -38 degrees. The record was -50 in 1950, but it was -47 as recently as 1996.

My plastic car window crank broke off in my hand. Diesel fuel was jelling in car fuel tanks. And on a drive from The Cities up to Bemidji, the vinyl windows started shattering on my convertible top SUV, one by one. It was tolerable up to about Walker, when my heater went out too...
