Duluths December finished with an average daily temperature of just 4.6 degrees, in seventh place for coldest Decembers since records have been kept. Thats 10.2 degrees below normal, but still well short of the all-time record cold December of 1.8 degrees set in 1983.
International Falls saw a mind-numbingly cold monthly average temperature of 4.1 degrees below zero for the month, which was the second-coldest December on record, just missing 4.3 degrees below zero in 1983. The Falls set a new record with eight days hitting 30 below or lower, breaking the old record of seven days.
< The National Weather Service in Duluth officially used the term uff-da to describe the cold rut were in.

Al Gore must be in town promoting his Gore Effect.
Wow. This Global Warming is escalating quickly.
Poor thing. He must be freezing his patooty off.
Gonna be a tough one here in the Twin Towns next week...
It is cold up here in the Upper peninsula of Michigan too. The lows have been in the range of 15 to 24 below. Sunday the low is forecast to be 30 to 35 below. Very little snow has fallen for the winter thus far, about 24 - 36 inches. Several freezing rain incidents which have made the roads ice covered and slippery. The biggest complaint is the roads, than the cold.
Don’t you usually get a lot of lake-effect snow?
The ship’s still stuck.
The peeps have been rescued by carbon spewing airships.
And I just saw the weather for Tampa tomorrow and the high will be 58.
Most lake effect snow off of Lake Superior has been hitting east of Marquette County(Alger and Luce Counties). Barga County has been hit with about 24 inches so far. We are getting 1 - 2 inches of snow at a time. Just too cold for snow. The snow seems to going more north, so Duluth gets more.
Yet Wisconsin central has had 14 inches at once. Chicago has had a bigger snowfalls than we have had. Our first snowfall was in October with 5 inches but it melted than got cold again.
Generally the UP is known to have its most snowfall between mid February and March 25. Many times this is when we get our 100 - 200 inches.
The ice fisherman are happy though as the lakes are frozen solid and the big fish are being caught.
N MN ice fishermen are less happy. Got a lot of snow on still thin ice = slush.
I direly lack the required vocabulary to express my appreciation to Al Gore for inventing the internet so that we can all accurately monitor the global warming that has been foisted upon us by our own stupidity.
