Remember "ask.sparxmind.com"?



No? Me neither. 😛
But spudart does, and submitted this question:

What’s the all-time record highest temperature for the low in Chicago?

He also submitted it to many "question asking-ish" websites, where no one could sufficiently parse what he was actually asking.

If the question doesn't make sense, maybe explaining how I answered it will shine some light one it:

  • Retrieve the historical data for Chicago's daily "Low Temperatures" (I only went back to Jan 1, 1975).
  • Sort them and take the HIGHEST value. The HIGHEST Low.
  • Done. That's it

If you're curious, here's the post with his question and answer: Chicago’s record “Highest Low” Temperature?
