It’s cold outside. We all know that. But how cold is it compared to … ?
Colorado Springs was at 5 degrees as of 1 p.m. Thursday. And it will stay bone-chilling cold through at least the weekend. More snow is even predicted.
How does Colorado Springs compare with well-known colder towns? The Mother Nature Network listed the seven coldest places to live in the world. Let’s compare.
The Colorado town Fraser made the list. Fraser is 5 degrees.
Hell, Norway is 23 degrees.
International Falls, Minn., is 10 degrees
Barrow, Alaska is 4 degrees
Yakutsk, Russia is -18 degrees
