Gotta say, the squared off lines of that Soviet truck have a certain style, reminds me of something...

But yah, I'm way too wimpy for that climate. The morning after we did the Off Roadeo in Moab was the eclipse day. We got up early to try and beat the crowds to Canyonlands NP (SPOILER ALERT- waited in line for an hour at entrance station).

Anyway, like I said, got an early start, it was 41F, and the first thing I did was turn on the heated steering wheel!

I spent four years as a child between Minot and Grand Forks, ND--Dad was in the USAF. During my own career in the USAF I spent just shy of six years at Rapid City, SD, and just over two years at Grand Forks. (As an aside, I walked by the house we lived at on base when I was a child--for some reason that address stuck in my head.)

Thankfully, flight operations at Grand Forks were suspended if the temperature got too low on the flightline. How low? -51F or colder. Brrrrrrr.

Mark, I grew up in Iowa and in the 50's & 60's winters were a lot worse than they are now. Much more snow then. Worked outside in that crap till 1981 and transferred to SoCal.

Remember working many days below zero with wind chill near -30 degrees. Didn't really bother me though, just didn't know any better.

Today the daytime temperature in Oymyakon is -47C, which means that pupils of all ages are busy studying.

There is a cut off mark of -52C for children aged 7 to 10 (Year One to Year Four in Russian school system), when they are allowed to stay home.

The school stops working for older pupils, too, when air temperature plummets to -56C.

I love it here in NC!
Me too. I was out hiking around for work with a nonprofit group that's about to sponsor a bunch of interpretive and wayfinding signage on the most popular trail on my District. The trail has needed some love for a while now so I was taking them around to the "problem areas" where we've had EMS calls or where folks have gotten lost to prove our need for the signage. Look at the views from the Pisgah right now. I love this state.

I was hunting in southern NM when the temperatures dropped to -20° F. I had a nice wall tent, but didn't bring my wood stove. One of my worst moves ever. It often doesn't even freeze on these hunts. One guy stayed in camp for the day and ran through two 20 lb. propane bottles. That group went to town and rented a motel. I wasn't that smart. We had a catylitic heater, but were afraid to use it too much. It didn't get above 20° F in the tent for 3 days. The diesel in my Jeep jelled, even though I had added freeze protection to the diesel. My friends GMC overheated! The guys from Montana said that tiny ice crystals in the air clog the air filter. We had an insulated water container and we still had to break the ice in it to get water. The 5 gallon blue cube jug split. The propane stove barely worked.

I lived in Tucson for 9 years and loved the hot weather. I'm all in for global warming. Way more people die from the cold than from the heat.
