How would you rate this climate? Unimaginably cold winters even for the most hardcore cold lovers and very short "tundra" style summers. Only precipitation that falls is snow and it gets 80 inches every fall that stick on the ground most of the year. Every July there is one brief thaw and then it quickly freezes again. Very large standard deviations in general.

This is my first attempt to use the wiki boxes so please let me know if you have any trouble opening and reading the attachment.

Horrid. I rate it a Z--!

Also unlivable. And with the snow pack unable to melt, I'm sure large glaciers exist. And with such a horrifically low annual mean temperature, permafrost everywhere a glacier isn't.

10 inches of precipitation would make more like 100 inches of snow, not 10. Aside from that, it's essentially uninhabitable without extensive support (e.g. fuel for warmth, food, etc.) from warmer climates, unless it's like some extreme version of Greenland where you can fish and hunt marine animals for sustenance. :P

It's 80 inches of snow a year so 8 inches of precip. need more practice with formatting.

I don't see how there could be liquid water in those temperatures. Everything would be under a thick layer of ice.

Except for during the brief thaw every July; rapid melting creating flood/mud issues and then quickly refreezing to more and more ice.

D- if I can stay in a dome or something protective from October to April. F otherwise.

The advantage of this over equatorial climates is that you see snow, and warmer than average July days would be comfortable, whereas in a equatorial climate there are zero comfortable days.
