Nation's 'Icebox' hits record 40 below zero
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- The temperature in International Falls, Minnesota, fell to a record 40
below zero Monday, just a few days after the northern Minnesota town won a federal trademark making it
officially the "Icebox of the Nation."
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, residents braved a temperature of 10 degrees on Monday.

It was so cold that resident Nick McDougall couldn't even get his car trunk lid to close after he got out his
charger to kick-start his dead battery. By late morning, the temperature had risen all the way to 18 --
below zero.

"This is about as cold as it gets, this is bad. There's no wind -- it's just cold," said McDougall, 48, a worker at The Fisherman, a convenience store and gas station in the town on the Canadian border. "People just don't go out, unless you have to go to work."

Residents of the area use electric engine block heaters to keep their cars from freezing.
"You plug in your car, for sure, and you put the car in the garage if you can," McDougall said. His garage
is full of other things, so he had to park outside -- a "big mistake."

The previous record low in International Falls was 37 below, set in 1967, said meteorologist Mike Stewart
at the weather service in Duluth. Thecold was expected, he said: "When the winds finally died off and
the skies cleared off, it just dropped."
