-40 C which is also -40 F.

The television put warnings up "...Exposed flesh can freeze in as little as 12 seconds..."
Hopefully I'll never see that again.

-37F in central MN with a wind speed with 15mph.
It was a rather cold ice fishing trip. I think I had about 5 layers of clothes on along with a ski mask.

-60 below (wind chill included) in 1994/95 I believe it was. It was colder than anything Ive ever felt or probably will ever feel.

-22 degrees F. during a major blizzard in 1977.
If we had not had 3 thermometors, all the same, we would not have believed it.

Um, until I moved to New Jersey from Miami when I was 21, the coldest temperature I had been in was 41 degrees. No joke.

Livinig in New Jersey (near the coast) the coldest temperature I was in was maybe about 8 degrees.

In Arizona, the coldest temperature I have been out in was about 31 degrees.

So I have yet to feel what 0 and below are like. Oh well, maybe one day.

I don't really know cause we've had so many cold days that nothing really sticks out. The year I was born was the coldest on record for my town and that was -50, but of course I don't remember it.

It's the windchills that we get here that are so awful. I definitely remember -35 air temps and 70 below zero windchills. There was a morning that our local radio station said it was 90 below with windchill, but we discussed that on here before and it wasn't a confirmed report, but it was close.

This year -37 actual, overall though I don't really know, try to forget those days you know

One morning in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan I awoke to the radio announcer saying the actual temp was -OMG and the windchill was... (long pause) "well our charts only go down to -127 so I can't really tell you what it is." I rolled over and went back to sleep.
