1/23/2014 Saint Paul Winter Carnival Ice Carving In Sub Zero Temps


The next wave of sub zero weather is hitting the midwest with temps at noon in the negative teen's as the Saint Paul Winter Carnival starts in Saint Paul, MN.

Freezing Antifreeze

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.

Good Bye Dad

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. 

1/2/2014 Extreme cold temps at sunrise in International Falls, MN

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.
