Although its inhabitants are used to low temperatures, those days reached a limit in which people’s eyebrows have frozen. The temperature dropped so much, down to -62ºC, at which point the official thermometer at the weather station broke and stopped working, even many locals claim that temperatures continued to drop to -68ºC.

The only similar record is from 1933, where the thermometers reached -67.7ºC, the lowest temperature recorded in the northern hemisphere. That being said, you cannot miss the following gallery about daily life in the coldest place in the world. plant:
