    I am very interested in how undocumented high elevation, ie >1,000', climate is in this area...and also out north of Sault Ste Marie in Ontario. There are so many gaps in the data.

    You're prolly aware of this stat: http://www.weatherbase.com/weather/weather.php3?s=447302&cityname=L'Anse-Twp-Michigan-United-States-of-America Though I actually just found it. It's labeled as 'L'anse Township' but it's actually out in the Huron's somewhere around Herman, maybe. It's also 1,700ish feet elevation, so basically on par with you. Gives some decent numbers for high elevation western UP.

    45 here. Been in the 40s the past few days. It's brilliant.

    Coldest wind chill by state

    Like 'wind chill'...'heat index' is another one of those imaginary gimmicks people use to exaggerate.

    I like next to none of those things. I love cold, clouds and mountains. That's when it's fun to get outdoors and hike, etc.

    Other than weak window units, a/c's are not standard across Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

    That is pretty impressive as a start though in terms of heat. Jeez.

    That's what sucks about the north. I grew up in Atlanta and never really suffered from the heat till I moved north. No on has air conditioners up here.

    The good thing about July is that you know everything from here on, in most years, is all downhill till winter.

    That's right on the lake. Go inland just a few more miles and temps, especially at night, will drop off far more. The lakes up here make a huge impact on overnight lows. Around here we typically average an overnight low of only 8-9 degrees...very warm for 47 degrees latitude. But our highs are also moderated - averaging only 19 or so degrees at my elevation in January.

    Another thing about the Frenchville readings. Those are measured at the airport which is quite a bit higher than the towns in that area. Winds up there are on average much higher than the surrounding areas - although there are a couple of fields in the Fort Kent/Frenchville/St Agatha/Madawaska area that really do get good gusts. If I had to pick an area within a reasonably inhabited area of Maine (by reasonably inhabited I'm making a distinction with places at elevations 3,500'+, lol, not the Allagash/Clayton Lake which I think DO count) but limiting out those insane outliers at high elevation - I think the St John Valley corridor probably holds the record for windchill. I lived there for quite a while and things really get colder there than areas down in Caribou or Limestone or Houlton, etc.

    It's not what you expect. Beyond a point, probably around -25 or so, the cold just feels like a searing kind of dry burn on your skin. It's cold but painful, kind of in the same way chapped lips burn. The immediate sensation is not a recognition of coldness or something like that, the immediate recognition is one of some sort of pain - because it really is harming the epithelial cells that make up your skin. Keratinization provides some protection - but only till a point. It's a weird feeling. Those coldest days my recollection is not one of coldcold, my recollection is of searing, painful cold.
