Results 1 - 10 of about 8,780 for "cold spot of the nation". (0.34 seconds)

Na, but the first time, I didn't actually search.

I figured that being a popular search term, if the autocomplete didn't come up with it in quotes, it wasn't going to work. I didn't realize that I spelled "spot" as "spit" when I did it, until I checked my input log a few mins ago.

When I posted the results with the quotes, I made sure to spell it correctly and actually click the search button.
