COLD! Edmonton breaks weather record

Although lots of folks are talking about global warming, the big buzz in Alberta has been how cold it was in Edmonton on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2009.

According to the Edmonton Journal, the city broke its previous cold record by 10 degrees with a LOW temperature of -46.1 C (-50.98 F). That made it the coldest place in North America.
