Default The "COLD WEATHER" Proof thread! Pictures required!

I figured this could be a fun idea for a thread with our cold temps lately. Jessica likes getting pictures next to the sign at West Fredy's in Fairbanks to show her friends in the lower 48 what cold looks like. So far this is the coldest picture she has in 5 years next to the sign. So when the temp drops go find the local sign or a thermometer to take your pictures next to outside. I think this could be COOLER than just posting a temp and city.
Here is ours to start. Jessica and Marley Moose 1-03-09 2pm

I was stationed up there for 6+ years and I can tell you that everything does function and that you can work in those temps, it just sucks badly, very badly... Greely is worse and then factor in wind chill.... I don't wish the Fairbanks, Northstar Borough on anyone....

UAF does a thing every year on campus to try and get as many people in as few clothes as possible when the sign on campus reads -40
