    I lived in Fairbanks Alaska and have experienced -67F one time, -50F was not uncommon.

    You take in a full breath and as you exhale, all your nose hair falls out.

    /Seriously it happens

    You attempt to take in a deep breath but choke.

    /It also happens, lungs freezing

    You can throw a cup of hot water/coffee in the air and nothing comes down

    /It's pretty damn awesome and true.

    You know it's cold when you see a politician with his hands in his own pockets.

    Yunus speaks the truth. When you can pour propane on the ground, and it lays there as a pool of liquid- THAT is cold.

    The coldest I have dealt with is -16 F, in York, County PA the day after the 1985 super bowl. The battery on my 1978 Datsun 210 was frozen, and the diesel in my 1980 VW Rabbit pick up was too thick to get through the injectors enough to run the engine over an idle.

    The diesel In South Central PA was Winterized, but not to -16F Winterized.

    I needed to get kerosene to cut the diesel to make the truck run, and bring the Datsun battery into the house, in an unheated room to let it thaw so the car could be started.

    It was colder then a Mother-In-Law's kiss!

    I wintered at RTC Great Lakes in the Navy. Boot Camp.

    Third floor.

    Spit out the window, it freezes and cracks on the way down.

    When it's really cold, it cracks twice.

    On the coldest days, the spit would crack three times.

    So we called the coldest days (IIRC- a chill factor of @

    89 below zero, F.) "three crackers". . .

    My grandmother used to tell of when she was a girl in North Dakota just a few miles from the Canadian border that every winter there would be at least one neighbor who froze to death getting the mail. That is cold!

    The coldest i've worked in was 60+ below zero including the wind chill.
    I was working two stories up on a roof installing sheet metal flashing,we had to keep the truck running with the silicone on the dash to keep it warm enough to flow.

    When the cows that didn't make it into the barn for the night don't have tails in the morning.

    The plastic bug guard on the hood of your pickup shatters like glass when you close the hood....

    The coldest ive ever experienced was in Wisconsin. Had a flatbed load with two stops. One stop was in Monroe and the other was Belliot, i think. Both stops were at Blain's Farm and Fleet stores. When I nade my first stop in the morning, around 9 i think, it was -10!

    Our orders were to keep the trucks running if the temp was 20 or below. Needless to say while I was in that region I didnt shut her down except to fuel up and check the oil.

    One night I stopped to sleep somewhere west of Cheyenne, left the engine running and the heater going to stay warm (this was a Ford F-8000) while I crashed in the sleeper. I woke up a couple of hours later freezing cold. The engine was still running but not producing enough heat to get into the cab heater. Opened the cooler to get something to drink before hitting the road again and everything in it had frozen.:eek:.
