So, being a no life nerd that likes to look into these things I got to thinking about the Beast from the East and all this weather it's been sending our way. Turns out we should count ourselves lucky - the people in Yakutsk have it really bad:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakutsk#Climate

Yakutsk has the coldest winter temperatures for any major city on Earth. Average monthly temperatures in Yakutsk range from +19.5 °C (67.1 °F) in July to ?38.6 °C (?37.5 °F) in January, and only Norilsk has a lower mean annual temperature for any settlement of over 100,000.[citation needed] Yakutsk is the largest city built on continuous permafrost, and many houses there are built on concrete piles.

The lowest temperatures ever recorded on the planet outside Antarctica occurred in the basin of the Yana River to the northeast of Yakutsk, making it the coldest major city in the world. Although winters are extremely cold and long – Yakutsk has never recorded a temperature above freezing between 10 November and 14 March inclusive

One of those places that I only know where it is because of playing the game 'Risk'.

Below a certain point, all temperatures look the same.
