In the Republic of Sakha, in northeast Russia, Reuters photographer Maxim Shemetov spent two weeks outside, documenting the punishingly cold winter weather. The coldest-ever temperatures in the northern hemisphere have been recorded in the Oymyakon Valley, known as the northern "Pole of Cold," where, according to the United Kingdom Met Office, a temperature of -67.8 degrees Celsius (-90 degrees Fahrenheit) was registered in 1933. Collected here are a few images from the frigid Siberian territory, where the average high temperature for this month was -40 degrees (same in both F and C).

Makes me want to put a jacket on even in my toasty 56 degrees.

I'm pretty sure that the coldest temperature I have endured is -17F/-27C, although with windchill substantially lower. This was on the summit of Killington Peak, Vermont.

There is a typo in #3, the name of the town should be "Tomtor".

Is good thing you come in summer, in winter it can get very depressing!
