So, you think its cold here?!?

There was a place in Russia that has held the world record for coldest place on earth, some ridiculous number close to MINUS (-)128F. (Take a moment, sit back in your chair right now, and imagine what just -28F itself would fee like…then subtract another HUNDRED in your mind! Talk about “Blowin your mind”!)

Well, researchers have found what they believe to be a NEW low! It’s interesting to keep in mind that there are few ways to measure temps so cold. Realize that alcohol and mercury thermometers will freeze well before reaching -100F. So, just measuring it is a serious challenge!

But here’s the article…so keep in mind, when you think Jack Frost is nippin at your nose here in CNY, it’s pocket change, compared to this place!

And yes, I included two pics, one of the Abominable Snowman (from Rudolph-the-red-nosed-reindeer cartoon), and of Han Solo (in Carbonite freeze) to set the mood!
