    So says the NWS website, with -39 F in 1972 and 1996, but I clearly remember the radio weather report before I left home that cold frosty morning. Must have been 1962 or 1963. Note that the airport is way up on the hill, and I lived down below.

    Meanwhile, today would have set a new record for lowest high temperature in Chicago, except that the temperature was falling at midnight and the official high temperature therefore was set at 12:01 AM.

    In pondering this long thread, it has caused me to wonder about the size of the HVAC systems in the production buildings at Kodak Park. Think about it. If you work for the average small company, bitterly cold weather probably also meant a nippy workday in the building. But at Kodak, if it was 40 below 0 outside for days on end, it surely had to stay correct in the buildings. Don't you know those HVAC units had to chug away sometimes.

    Yeah but its always warmer down the hill by the lake, though the wind chill can be worse. I was just razzing you anyway, I think 39 below is close enough to call it 40...For all its reputation it rarely gets that cold in Duluth, but you just have to go a few miles inland and its much colder

    Buttons go with pocket watches. They don't jam either.
