Anyone moaning about the severe weather…could be worse, This is village of Oymyakon in Russia where it is currently -62°C (-80°F) !!!!In fact, it just dipped to -62 Celsius (-79 Fahrenheit)in one northern Russian town — so cold that even thermometers stopped working.
Considering it holds the distinction of being the coldest permanently inhabited place on Earth, below freezing temps are par for the course for the rural Siberian village of Oymyakon.However, after a particularly dramatic dip on January 14, the thermometer it installed last year to draw interest from tourists stopped working once it hit the -62°C.
It’s likely it got even colder there, considering some residents recorded temps as low as -67°C (-88.6°F) at their properties, according to the Siberian Times.
