Minnesota Town Takes Title with Chilly Low

Embarrass need be no longer: It can now proudly claim the title of the Nation's Icebox from neighboring International Falls, Minn. The town of Embarrass hit 54 degrees below zero. It was below zero all over the Midwest, and even Pensacola, Fla., was in the teens with the wind chill factor. Of course, it's usually awfully cold in the winter in Embarrass, something a town clerk told AP that "gets old after a while."
