    Okay, okay. And the answer is: -40 degrees C and -40 degree F are the same temperature.

    Which is pretty darn cold on any temperature scale... The coldest temperature I ever experienced was minus -46 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. It was very cold. Weird things happen at that temperature.

    We do not get as many -40 days here as we used to (and to the people that say global warming is a hoax, hah!) but as a kid it was routine, especially at night. One year we did have -30 C or colder for 71 days, it was brutal. 20 F is -6, I went out in the garage and did some ripping of brace material a few years back at that temperature with a pair of shorts on. It wasn't bad except for the 'breeze' coming off the table saw. It is the wind chill that gets you. In dead air cold temperatures are more bearable.

    We've had -10 F here several times.

    49 is my magic number. -49C on an expedition in Greenland, and 49C in Israel near the Dead Sea. I'm finding it difficult to decide which I liked the least.
