-20C for a high isn't really considered super cold here if its mid winter. We've had it 15 times I think and they 30 times in Thompson so far this winter. Coldest high was -29.8C here and -32.7C in Thompson.

OTOH, if we get it in December and not really used to the cold yet, then it sure feels bad.

Like Shalop states, people will always be out no matter the temperature. On the -40.0C (actual temp) morning we had a few weeks ago, I saw a person out jogging at 7AM.

The coldest temperature I've been in is -14C/6F. I don't have all the gear for cold weather that people have if they live where it regularly gets to those temperatures, but I was okay outside for a couple of minutes with just a jacket and gloves. Wouldn't want to stay out longer than that, though.

Yeah coldest high here was -30C here as well. Although, I can't seem to adjust to wearing less clothes like someone I know does. He can wear T-shirt and shorts at -12C, and when I do that I feel pretty cold.

I experienced -20c or lower few times here where I live.

In early morning in February 9, 2012, I woke up deliberately because that morning in Serbia was peak in coldness of February 2012 cold wave https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_...pean_cold_wave
Temperature here that morning fell to -26c with dense fog. I went for a walk with my brother. We dressed well. My beard and eyebrows were frozen, my brother had only frozen eyebrows because he did not have a beard. Ice was also on parts of our clothes.

Btw in some places in northern Serbia in February 9, 2012, temperature fell to -30c. Sava, Danube and other rivers had deep ice from late January to about February 25.

This.

You don't have to experience -20C to know that it's extremely cold.

I spent over 60 years living in a state where the winter temps dropped as low as -20 and wind chills as low as -50(Fahrenheit). I donít care who you are, thatís cold!

Living now in south Florida, I get cold when the temp drops into the low 50ís!!

Wait a minute the guy that said -4F isn't cold, just told me he was once in 113F/45C heat with 100 percent humidity once. Making that a dewpoint of 113F. Yeah he must be exaggerating things. He said the heat index was only 137F though, which is wrong at that temperature and humidity. I don't think coastal Mississippi gets that humid or well anywhere in the world! He also claimed the coldest he experienced was -60F with a wind chill of colder than -100F. That I can't quite verify as a lie, but he is exaggerating that heat though.

Wearing a t-shirt and shorts at -12C would result in frostbite and hypothermia pretty quickly. Also, it just seems crazy insane.

45C with 100% humidity would also kill a person pretty quickly, and the highest recorded dewpoint is only 35C/95F in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. People exaggerate all the time, like saying Winterpeg is -40C all the time in winter and 40C all the time in summer.
