the lowest I've ever experienced is about -45 F with wind chills around -65-70 F in northern Minnesota growing up.

in the late 90's I remember a stretch of time where it was below zero for almost 3 weeks. it really gets to you. it also makes simple things like starting up my garden and taking brisk walks in the spring seem like the greatest thing in the world.

Yeah, it was like that in UK 3 or 4 years back. Usually the snow and ice just melts and disappears after a few days, but on that occasion persisted for about 6 weeks. It's so true about the contrast thing, it makes you really appreciate the spring when it comes.
