-67 a decade or so ago somewhere north of Tok it had been in the -40s and dropped down to the -60s for two hrs.... never again. What a horrible number to see on a thermometer. The coldest day is recorded on a building near north pole, some of the numbers below my mind.

Saw -27 last winter and decided it was time to drive south till it changed.

Retired this past August from United Airlines after 44 years of which the majority was at O'hare airport.I have suffered through every extreme temperature from 120 with the sun heating the tarmac to -80 with wind chill.The polar vortex of last year was pretty rough considering I was 63 years old.Trust me when I tell you those temperature extremes play havoc with your body which I really feel these days!

I don't really know what's the coldest but I've skied in some pretty chilly spots. Now that we live in Florida and it's 65 outside, that's not comfortable.


But New York City is the place I remember as having seemed coldest in the Winter and hottest in Summer. In wasn't, of course. Just seemed that way.

Below -60 the winter or 1975/76 while assigned to Charlie Airborne 4/9 Infantry at Fort Wainwright, AK. We were on an exercise to the Blair Lakes region about 30 miles south of Fairbanks. The coldest I've ever felt was at Camp Rudder in the Florida panhandle.
