  2. No global warming in Mongolia then ! The perma-frost further north, cannot be melting at these temperatures.
    Whilst summer melting of permafrost is publicised …….autumn and winter RE-FREEZING of permafrost is kept really quiet !!

  3. No prizes for guessing what I am thinking LOL. I want to go skating. Then I watched a Youtube video of Lake Baikal where people went drumming on the ice, playing piled up sections like a musical instrument. Magic! However, if it gets too cold I know I won’t enjoy it. I’ll just stay indoors drinking vodka and probably talking things that make little sense to anybody.
    Merry Xmas from Little Old me in the UK

  4. next up reports of some more hundreds of thousands of cattle killed
    wonder how the rare deer and other critters are doing?

  5. -39, almost balmy for Siberia, of course if Global Warming took it up to -37 it would be the end of the world as we know it……

    even -37 is cold, exposed skin freezes and if you ever need to take a wiz outdoors, well you think twice…. Even jeans are not enough, you need at least long underwear underneath, once I recall wearing nylon pants in this weather (around the 70th parallel) for 10 mins and it was way too long… Winter is from early Sept till late April, and dark/dim for at almost 2 months,,,
