I didn't think it got that cold on earth but see the link for a lower one in 2013. Yikes!

WOW! That is one great photo. Those frozen eyelashes are crazy! I did read that part where it said it got to -98F in Oymyakon. I remember being in North Dakota when my Nephew graduated College during Dec. one year. It was -20F with a wind chill of -30 and I couldn't stay out for more than about 2 minutes at a time.

That article said those 2 guys froze to death trying to walk to a nearby farm. That has got to be a hideous way to die. Poor guys.

The only GOOD thing about that is that Anastasia would need some warming up as she came back in the house! There sure isn't anything else to do when its that cold. smile
