Coldest you've seen the mercury drop to

What's the coldest you've seen it go to? Throw in windchill for the heck of it.

As a towtruck driver out on the roads, the coldest I saw I get to was -53 in Leduc last year.

The temp read out in my Jeep was -55c when I was in La Loche last year. Love Canadian winters!

Despite what everyone thinks, Montreal is actually pretty balmy compared to most of Canada.

It goes down to -30C sometimes with the wind chill, but that's usually about as bad as it gets around here.

When I was growing up in Winnipeg, the temp would drop to -40 quite often. I have worked outside at -30 to -35, too old for that anymore.. so thats why I live in Calgary now

Well, I grew up in Northern Alberta and moved around far too much around Canada, but my grandma is from and currently lives in Aklavik, NWT... last February I visited her and the temperatures stayed around -40?C ... that was pretty cold for me, especially since I live south of the border in Virginia now. But I just did a little google search on temperatures and found this little fact:

The lowest recorded temperature was -71?F (–57.2?C) at Fort Smith on 26 December 1917
(The Northwest Territories)

As a firefighter for over 32 years, we had many occasions where it was so cold fighting fires that our mustaches broke off when you wiped your nose. How cold? Who cares. It was too cold!
Here is a picture taken on the warmest day we had that week. The rest were below -30f

Man that spf 50 sunblock weather!!

Years ago I was up north and the thermometer read -50C (abt -60F) and the wind was about 40 mph, gusting to 60 mph. I don't know what the wind chill was but it was pretty darn cold.
