Fosston, MN, Hits 24 Degrees Below Zero

Posted: Updated:

   In the Valley News Live viewing area, Warroad in northwestern Minnesota takes the top honor for being the coldest town.

  It was minus 26 in Warroad today and 24-below over in Fosston. Fosston is 70 miles east of Grand Forks.

  Just how cold is that? When you throw warm water in the air, it instantly turns into ice crystals.

  Despite the bitter cold, life goes on. Bill Jusmaul still has to shovel the sidewalk at this apartment building.

Reporter: "So are you ready for some warmer weather?"

Bill Jusmaul: "Sure am. You betcha."

  And Tom Hemphill continues plowing the sidewalks and driveways of Fosston with his four-wheeler, although he planned on taking a few more indoor  breaks today.

Tom Hemphill: "I think it's awfully cold. I think I might no home and warm up in between here a little bit."

Reporter: "Take a little break today?"

Hemphill: "I think so. Yes."

  Curtis Paulson has seen 82 winters, and he's here to tell you that he's seen worse.

Reporter: "So this is nothing?"

Curtis Paulson: "If you live in northern Minnesota, this is what you expect ha. We've been spoiled because we haven't had anything like this since 2009."

  And whether you like it or not,  more cold temps are on the way.
