It really is as cold in Minnesota as it is in the Arctic.
The CBC gives us a glimpse today into the life of Cameron Bobinski, who started KimmirutWeather.com in 2006.
Current temperature is about 20 below there — that’s 20 degrees colder than the current temp in International Falls. But that’s about the same temperature it was at midnight, when sections of Minnesota were more than 20 below.
The sun came up in Kimmirut this morning a little after 9. It sets at 2:11 p.m.
