Last night, the lowest temeperature I read was -21.2°C (roughly -6°F), which is pretty cold here by the coast, considering the humid air and the wind.

I grew up in the inland, in a district with very dry air in winter, and "wind" was something we read about in books. Then, it wasn't real winter unless it was at least twenty below. Also, a snowfall less than 25-30 cm wasn't worth mentioning. Every wither we had at least a meter and half of snow on flat land, in snowy winters it could be up three meters. But note: When it is twenty below, a meter of snow isn't very much - it is fluffy and light, very far from wet sludge. Actually, we couldn't have snow ball wars or making snowmen, because the snow would just fall apart.

But those were the 1960-70s. Climate has changed now. From the viewpoint of a 12 year old boy, it is certainly not to the better.
