We have seen minus 38 several times here in Central Maine, but less than once per decade. First time I recall was in the early 1970s, and three guys came knocking on our door at 1 am. One middle-aged guy and two teens. They had left their car running and hiked a mile down a camp road to visit another guy. Strange night for it, but I suspect some strange things were going on in the camp. By the time they got back to their car it had died and would not start again, and ours was the only house they found within half a mile with a light on. They were SO cold they were desperate, and said if nobody answered the door they were going to smash the glass and let themselves in. Anyhow, amazingly, my VW Beetle sitting out in the driveway started, and after we warmed them up with hot drinks I drove them about 25 miles home.
The house sure makes funny creaky noises when it gets that cold.
