Running a Server outdoors

Last Modified: 2013-11-10
I might have a situation where I need to locate a server in the middle of a parking lot. I am located in the Northeast so we get all 4 seasons, sometime extremely so.
I am not sure how to really go about this.
Do I use an outdoor enclosure like from L-Com? If so how do I handle cooling it?
Do I build a small shed to house the server? Again, how would I cool it?
Just brian storming here, any ideas or experience would be helpful.
