Have you thawed out yet? Sub-zero days high across district

The Ninth District experienced a very cold and long winter. The National Climate Data Center keeps a detailed record of weather conditions at local airports. The Minneapolis area experienced 50 days of below-zero temperatures, the most in more than 35 years (see table).

If you prefer mild winters, there was almost nowhere to turn in the district. One of the more temperate places was Billings, Mont., which experienced “only” 20 below-zero days. In Fargo, N.D., three out of four days were bitterly cold this winter—the coldest winter since 1979.

District below zero days -- 4-2-14
