God damn! Are you people allright?! ^^
-20C? Maybe -20F (Which is still hella cold). Though here in Pennsylvania, the lowest temperature I've seen is 5F.

It's kind of funny. In November, December, and early January, it was relatively warm (45+F, some days hitting up to 70F... IN DECEMBER.) but then... PLUMMET.

If I had known that the cold was going to strike like this, I wouldn't have shaved my head bald. (I'm letting it grow back now O.o)

20 degrees centigrade... COLD? WTF?

Over here that's quite warm...

And 0 degrees centigrade ain't all that bad if you ask me... I prefer 12 or so though.

Whee. Apparently, another storm like the last one we had in my area is coming through.

Which basically means another week and a half of frozen hell on the highway.

Agreed. We only get a handful of days above 20°C in an entire year. However, the OP mentioned -20°C which is pretty chilly - although it has certainly dropped to that a few times around here too. The coldest we've had this Winter so far is -11°C. The coldest I have experienced here was -25°C which was a good few years ago now (1982 I think). Although I'm sure that is positively tropical to some people.

The irony now that I think about it:

-20C is warmer than -20F :?

Coming from an American, that's entirely true. I want the metric system!
