Coldest of cold towns!

Think we’re having a rough winter? Yakutia region of Russia winter temps dipped to minus 70 F.

Cold, cold dog day afternoons

  1. Eyelashes freeze!
  2. The frozen ground makes it difficult for working indoor plumbing, so most toilets are outhouses.
  3. Cars left outside need to be kept running, otherwise they will not restart.
  4. Planes cannot fly into the area in the winter.
  5. Great difficulty in working with the dead! Have to thaw the ground first!
  6. And of course the risk of frostbite is great after only a few minutes in the cold.
