You'd have trouble moving with all of the above when the temp hits -60's F (however I'm pretty sure you won't be feeling those).

Having a baggy winter jacket that will trap warm body heat will save you some of those layers. One rated to certain temps also helps. However after saying that an Eskimo lady made me a parka when I was living up in Inuvik. It had a lightweight waterproof shell, the interior was made with a felt like material with a lining and had a hood surounded with fur (trapped heat around the face). Nothing special about it except she made it 2-3 sizes too big for me. It was also long enough to go almost to my knees (fur trimmed the bottom of the coat as well as the cuffs of the sleeves). It definitely had room for one loose bulky sweater and an undershirt (and lots of warm body air). Along with the above she made me a pair of fur mitts with dummy string attached and a pair of sealskin mukluks (yes I feel sorry for the seal but that was over thirty years ago and it was how they made money). When I was outside for a long period of time I wore long johns and sometimes ski pants as well.

4 C to -7 C: Cool weather, nice to be outside.

-7 C to -18 C: Cold, but doable for going outside.

-18 C to -29 C: Very cold, better wear one or more layers!

-29 C to -40 C: Extremely cold, the weatherman will start talking about it as a special event.

-40 C to -51 C: Impressively cold. Better avoid going out!

Below -51 C: Everything would shut down in London (If it can happen)

I would generally say below 11º C in summer, and bellow 3º C in winter is cold for me, but also depends on other factors like humidity, windchill, etc.

The cold does scare many away but we still have lots moving here from the U.K., Europe, India and the Philippines. Many are finding there are good opportunities for their children here and some always wanted to farm. We are currently having excellent weather for our crops and lots of old farmers are retiring.

−5 C in winter, and 10 to 15 C in summer. Obviously the first and last freezes of each season "feel" cold and I still view a sustained rain between 0 and 3 C to be the absolute coldest. then again I have never experienced (raw skin) anything lower than −15 C; no, living through the −31 C cold of January 1994 in Ohio doesn't count!
