The other day I did a video from the back yard here in Minnesota.
With the prolonged extreme cold temperatures in the Upper Midwest, and double digit negative highs for most of Minnesota, here is an extreme cold example for vehicles that do not have strong enough Anti-Freeze in their cooling system.
The antifreeze used in this video was from a vehicle that was purchased from Kansas and was not winterized for the extreme Minnesota winters.

I was out playing around in the cold this morning.
With the start of the next arctic blast to the upper Midwest, the temps have started to drop well below zero. Shot in Saint Cloud, MN which is the far northwest suburb of the Twin Cities metro area, the temperatures have dropped rapidly after midnight to the double digit below zero range.
One of the hardest blog posts I have had to write. While I was out on assignement up in International Falls, MN earlier this month, my sister called me as I was setting up for the daylight -42F video package and told me that I needed to head back to Minneapolis as soon as possible today since my dad took a turn for the worse.
BRRRRRRRR, at sunrise this morning it was pretty freaking cold. The official report from the airport as -42F with outlying areas a few degree's colder.
I did find out the the Jeep temperature sensor bottoms out at -40F.
Now I'm heading home to get cleaned up then to head down to Minneapolis to see my Dad in the hospital.
Trying to keep my New Years Resolution about updating my personal blog and site as much as I do the Facebook and Twitter feed, here is the footage I just shot in northern Minnesota in the city of International Falls, MN.
Im on assignment up here after getting a request to come up here and document the cold temps.
Happy New Year from downtown Saint Cloud, MN with fireworks over Lake George.
