Winter in Russia

So You Think Your Winter Is Rough?

There's winters and there's winters. Some live in Colorado and think they have bad winters, some live in Minnesota and think they have bad winters. Some live in Canada and think they have it worst.

Try Siberia.

By far the most commonly occurring climate in Siberia is continental subarctic, with the annual average temperature about −5 °C (23 °F) and roughly −25 °C (−13 °F) average in January and +17 °C (63 °F) in July, although this varies considerably, with July average about 10 °C in the taiga–tundra ecotone.

The average temperature in January is -13 Fahrenheit. That means a good day is -10! And we're not talking wind chill over the flat arctic plain!

Now that's winter.
