As the seasons get ready to change, we bring you an interesting piece of info that may come as no surprise, especially to long-time North Dakota residents.

More specifically, the Peace Garden State is deadlocked with Wyoming for the #2 spot, each having an astounding 181-degree gap between its record high and its record low.

North Dakota's scorching record high of 121 degrees was set in Steele in July 1936; its bone-chilling all-time low of -60 occurred in Parshall in February of the same year.

Incidentally, the hottest temperature ever recorded anywhere on earth happened right here in the US: California's Death Valley National Park endured a high of 134 degrees on July 10, 1913.
