I remember a number of -50 and -60 days and LOTS of -10 and -20 days in the Fairbanks area some years back....
Thus the reason why when 20-30 degrees rolls around....everyone is wearing shorts!
But yeah, they can keep their -85....I will take my sunny 60 Colorado weather like today!
oh and by the way....residents up there have to (should) winterize their vehciles....so if a vehcile is left outside, you literally plug it in to an outlet....for your engine block heater.....
I know at the air force base there....the flightline crew would be out working on the jets up to -40....then they had to come inside....edit on January 30th 2012 by greeneyedleo because: (no reason given)

I used to live in halfway up the Cairngorms Avimore and was talking about a combined temp with wind chill factor.

I used to live in the very north of the UK in the mountains and when it got lower than -25c we could dry our washing by putting it out on the washing line and then 15 mins later just hit it with a stick the ice dropped off and it was dry.
That's amazing! I never heard that before...
