Cold as Mars

If you've ever had to chisel your car out of a block of ice on your way to work or wear a thermal nose-warmer, you know Canada can get pretty cold in the winter. The average low for the month of January in Ottawa, Ont. is -14.4 C (6.1 F). That's pretty cold. However, a temperature recorded in 1947 in Snag, Yukon makes the rest of Canada's winter weather seem like a beach vacation. A temperature of -63 C (-81.4 F) was recorded in the small village of Snag on Feb. 3, 1947.

You guys, rock. I'm sure others here are thinking mmm.
