Minnesota’s cold snap is nothing compared to record low of -135.8º


Minnesota and much of the nation was locked in an Arctic blast over the past few weeks, but there is one spot that is much, much colder – East Antarctica, a suburb of the South Pole, recorded the world record cold checking in at -135.8 degrees Fahrenheit, which is -93.2 Celsius.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside,” the Christmas song by Frank Loesser, is being considered East Antarctica’s theme song.
