-31 Degrees Recorded in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

Bismarck hits 31 below around 9:30 Monday morning.

That's not wind chill, that's the actual temperature.

Subzero temps are always a hot topic of conversation, but according to one man who works outside for at least a six hour shift, the extreme cold is worse than it looks.

Sure you can see his breath as he delivers the mail, and his eyelashes are nearly frosted shut, but Dave Volk says it's all about dressing properly and being grateful the sun is shining and the wind isn't blowing.

"That's why I say it looks a lot worse than it is, you know my breath coming up, sticks to everything and kind of freezes over, every once in awhile you've got to take your glove and kind of wipe your eyes and stuff, but like I said, for the most part I'm warm, I'm not cold." says Dave Volk, mail carrier.

The coldest temperature reported in our viewing is negative 34 degrees in Hettinger.
