OK, so acting upon Martha's question about COLD, I did some "Google-ing". It seems tht I'm very close to the cold spot of Wisconsin. About 40 miles south of me, in Sawyer County, is the little town of Couderay. It has the distinction of being on the books as having a few cold temp records for WI.
3-1-1962 .... -48°F
The little town of Winter, just 15 miles east of Couderay, is listed as the coldest location ranked by lowest average annual temperature: 39.2 F.....That's chilly!!!
