      When I was in the RAF we done cold weather trials for the Tristar aircraft in Fairbanks Alaska in deep winter, coldest recorded was -51C could not go outside without face masks and specialised cold weather clothing, was there for 3 weeks , no daylight just damn cold...but with all the correct gear and not being stupid ( not staying outside for more than a few mins) its bearable but live there ? NO WAY

      Cars were left running in the car park as the engine heaters were useless....i remember asking a copper about people stealing cars if left running....his reply.....where the hell are they going to go? Anchorage is 400 miles south...

      Used to work in Sainsburys as a teenager, a few minutes in the walk in freezer was my go to way to wake up on a Sunday morning after a night out drinking. I'm sure you could feel your bones freezing!
