    The coldest I've experienced is -20, and I remember it hurt my lungs to breath it in.
    the funny thing is while i think the starter went out in my 2007 truck and it wouldnt start even after being plugged in all night......my 13 year old jeep cherokee out in the street dang near started without being plugged in all night, i think if it was about 15 degrees warmer it would have started up no problem.......something bout that aint right...........

    Wow Finch, I'm sorry you had to go through that. Maybe if you still don't feel well, you should see a doctor?
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Beware of the yellow snow!

    The coldest I can remember was -42C about 15 years ago... and yes, I went to school, and yes, we had classes, though there were only like 5 people hahaha. In any case, as soon as you walk out the door, everything on your face instantly freezes - hair, eyebrows, eyelashes Tree trunks burst open, car batteries freeze... damn global worming! You just don't get the same weather anymore!

    11 FEET of snow in 2 weeks 2 winters ago and I had to keep clear about half a tennis courts worth of space (between the driveway and the sidewalk if you lump 'em). To put it in perspective for those who are blessedly SNOWLESS, one shovel full of the stuff weighs about the same as 2 loaves of supermarket bread. Picture half a tennis court stacked with loaves of bread about to your chest, then remove them with a shovel 2 at a time, throwing them 5 -8 feet in the air each time. Repeat same every day for 2 weeks in sub-zero conditions. One shovelfull of chest high snow is about 2-3 inches thick if you slice the glacier from chest to ground to the width of the shovel blade. My solution was to not let it accumulate, so spent most of the 2 weeks outside, removing the dandruff of the gods as it fell and sleeping for a few hrs before returning to the Plutonic Waste. Road plows would plow the permafrost back chest high at least 4x daily, and this stuff had to be taken out by loosening with a mattock before throwing it back godwards.

    I know some of you wonder why I don't have a snowblower but the answer involves WOMAN, so 'nuff said there, right guys?

    I had friends close to Siberia email me with pity since apparently we made the news there.
    Folk in Alaska think I'm crazy to live here. I live in Oswego, which probably translates from the Native American "Us We Go" ...and they did, each winter to more Southern climes.

    The post script is that today here in December, its raining and in the 50's! Bring on the global warming!

    rattler,
    I can easily understand temps that low..
    but how can the temp be that low AND have such a high humidity at the same time?

    Around here..when we get down to around zero F we also have VERY low humidity..
    its extremely dry..

    we often hear "its too cold to snow"..
    the air can be SO cold, that it becomes bone dry, and there isnt enough mositure in it to form snow..(unless its lake-effect, picking up water from the great lakes..but thats different)

    I thought it was pretty much universal that low temp = dry air..
    but apparently not!

    so im just curious..what is it in your climate gives you low temp + high humidity?

    70% humidity is just the amount of water the atmosphere can hold, it is completely dependent on air temperature. It can still be cold, dry and at 70% because 70% at that temperature is still dry.

    It was more of blowing than snowing.
    that makes no logic

    not sure why we have the high humidity........actually its rather odd....usually the air is bone dry when its this cold out....near as i can figure this air mass passed over the pacific for a bit before coming to us kinda in a lazy "L" path....usually they come more or less straight down from the arctic across the Canadian prairie with no where to pick up any moisture.......we are technically borderline desert as we average 12 inches or less of precip, we get extream cold and generally very lil snow....actually this front only brought about an inch of fairly light weight snow so im not sure why there is so much moisture still in the air....right now its -17(-39 with wind chill) and the humidity is still over 60%....
