Cold enough for you? Hardly. You may think you’re in misery with your 10-degree weather, but people in other parts of the globe are rolling their eyes at us as we freak out about weather that they'd consider delightfully temperate. You want cold? We’ll show you cold.

Before you dramatically scream “Why!” into your heated blanket, you may want to think about how lucky you are. Yes, you are very lucky compared to those places on earth for which 10 degree temps would indicate some sort of a heat wave. Did you know that the coldest temperature ever recorded was a deliriously freezing minus 128.6 degrees Fahrenheit in Vostok, Antarctica? Granted, no one in their right mind lives there, but there are still other places in the world where their residents would kill to have the weather we’re having right now.
