Park Rapids hits 40 below Friday

National Weather Service, Park Rapids, Friday

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.

It will warm up today to give us another inch of snow.

But the National Weather Service says it will be 19 by Wednesday - above zero.

And for those of you who just can't face any more, Sun Country flights south are filling up with light speed.
