I have never experienced really cold weather and never thought I would until I booked a flight to Minnesota to visit relatives who just moved to that State.
As a Washington DC resident, I see some cold days. One time it got down to 10 degrees but that was in the middle of the night and I was sleeping. Most days are above freezing.
I was told that in Minnesota it can get to 40 below zero, with a wind chill that goes to 90 below. Exposed skin is frost bitten if is out for more than a few seconds.
What did I get my self into?
