Having fallen into the deep freeze ourselves, it's easy to think that it doesn't get much colder than it is right now (or will be within the next couple of days).

Of course, we would be quite wrong in thinking that.

Lots of places, or rather, the people who live in lots of places would gladly switch what they're living with for what we have going on atmospherically here in northern Illinois.

5-10 below zero? Why, that's a regular balmy day for some (I'm looking at you Russia. You too, Greenland).

If the video above made you shiver a bit, the one below should balance you out nicely.
