If you're reading this you've already made the decision to get out of bed and face the day, unless you have your laptop tucked under the covers with you.


It hit 40 below around 4 a.m. today in Park Rapids; 41 below if you listen to locals who recorded that 1 degree dip at 4:30 a.m.

And it may be redundant, or even unnecessary to say this, but we're under an "extreme cold warning" and "wind chill advisory" much of today.
