    Just this morning the meter hit -32 degrees centigrade.

    Kinda makes me wonder why people migrated up here in the first place...

    I've experienced down to -20 in Sweden over Xmas breaks the past few yrs. That's cold.

    But y'know what, if you wrap up it doesn't feel as cold as ya typical miserable 2/3 + British damp Winter day, cos the cold takes the dampness outta the air.

    However, the darkness & 4 hrs daylight gets to ya head. Longest I've stayed is 2wks. Don't think I could do a whole winter of the that...

    here we have a Wind Chill Level....not sure if thats a common term. but basically it means. Say its 9 degrees or whatever....then they'll say the W.C is -20 degrees. so basically its minus 20...unless the wind isnt blowing...wich is never. so further inland i would rather be.
