EMBARRASS, Minnesota (KARE) -- A person might not expect someone to want the distinction of living in the coldest place ever in Minnesota.

But the heartiest of souls in Northern Minnesota are actually a little proud.

At least once a day for 25 years, Roland Fowler has observed the weather, but not in the casual sense like most.

"This here is the weather box," he gestured.

Roland is the official recorder of the temperature in Embarrass, Minnesota for the National Weather Service,

On Tuesday, it reached -31 degrees, which is not even the coldest recording this winter.

"Forty-seven below occurred on Friday."
