Forget Minnesota nice. When it gets this cold over and over again, polite goes out the window.

"It stinks," Pam Rannila said.

"I don't like it," Elmer Olson said. "It's too cold this winter."

Tuesday marked the ninth day we've hit -20 degrees or colder this winter. That's actual temperatures without wind chill.

"It takes my breathe away; it hurts," Michaela Silker said. "I don't like it."

Even if you try to stay positive, the problems that come with cold weather can quickly sour your mood.

"I woke up to go out to go to school and there was glass all over my seat and all over my floor from a bottle of sprite blowing up," Jim Rice said.

In true Minnesota fashion, let's look on the bright side.

Records show January 6 through January 18 are the coldest days of the winter season. Also, on January 21, 1954 it hit -32 degrees.

Does that make you feel better?

"No," Rannila said. "Not until I feel the warmth."
