YIKES!! That is 70 degrees colder than our high for the day here.....
I once experienced 25 below F, with wind chills making it minus 80.
Not something I care to experience again, ever.
Stay warm, brother.

It really isn't as bad as it sounds, you can dress for it, whereas its difficult to dress for extreme heat

When Princess and I were in Finland, we were told that Finnish children are taught at a young age that there is no such thing as bad weather, but rather, just poor dressing for it.

tru  dat,
this morning was minus 30,
yes dressing warmly is something us Canucks can do.
Minus 30 by the big river ( which divides our nations over here),
 where I ski, in Quebec, minus 30 at the foot of the mountain, minus 40 at the top,
add in wind, as you're skiing down, and it's a frosty one.

also, cars don't like the extreme cold ( fluids are quite thick, transmission, etc).

I need to apologize for my error in temperature readings.

I have a dual read-out thermometer outside my kitchen window.

The other morning i reported it said minus 28 farenhieght.
 In fact that was minus 28 celcious, which, is only minus 20 on the farenhieght side.

sorry to mislead.

either way, it's really #@&*$ing cold out.

Yuck!  Either way, -28F or -20F, it’s too cold for a weather wuss like me!  I spent two winters in NW Iowa, and honestly anything below about -5F was almost too cold to discern!  (It’s also hell on wood instruments.  Being from the PNW, I never had to really think about humidity problems.  My violin cracked that first winter, and I had to ship it home to be repaired.  Lesson learned!)

In our neck of the woods, I need to keep a de-humidifier on May-October.
then a humidifier running full December to part of april.

Our temps go to plus 35 C in the summer to minus 30 in the winter.

yes, hard on musical instruments, especially on the road, in and out of vehicles, to and from gigs.

One set of great grandparents was from Finland and I can vouch for that longstanding and wonderful philosophy. Now we just refer to it as layering.

Yeah, ditto that as well. I told Nina about the post and she said the same for Sweden... "There is no bad weather, just bad clothing". She said it in Swedish, too.

Since the thread has evolved, I'll contribute.

Here in Edmonton, for the last week, it has been in the low -30s C overnights and only up to -27ish C for daytime highs.  Tonight it is forecast to dip to -35C.  That's damn cold.  Add any amount of wind and we are hitting -40 to -45C wind chill values.  Exposed skin will become frost-bitten in less than 5 minutes with these values.  Hot air furnace is running almost constantly.  Humidification of the guitar room is an absolute must right now.  My little humidifier is putting out about a gallon of water every 12 hours right now to maintain an RH of about 45% around my guitars.

Looks like a reprieve coming by mid week though.  Highs hovering around 0C or 32F.
