I drove to Embarrass, Minnesota with my cat
The name Embarrass derives from the French word embarras, which means "to hinder with obstacles.” It was given the name by early French fur traders who found the narrow, shallow river difficult to navigate, and so named the river "Embarrass."
Known as “The Cold Spot,” the town sits in a low-lying basin where frigid air settles as it drains along the river. Residents of Embarrass are proud of their cold temperatures. There's even a giant thermometer celebrating a recorded negative 64 degree temperature.
(Un)Official Embarrass Greeting: “That’s it, people. I’m moving to Florida.”
