A Thermometer Just Broke At -62°C (-80°F) In The World’s Coldest Village, And The Photos Are Breathtaking

People still need to drive in the freezing cold village, but their cars need to be stored in heated garages to prevent the engines from freezing. Outside, the cars must be left running.

While people still have to go to work, students in the coldest village on Earth are given a break, as classes are canceled when temperatures are lower than -52 degrees Celsius.

There is only one shop in Oymyakon, Siberia, but it can provide the 500 locals with anything they require, as long as they trek through the freezing cold.

Chapple told the Telegraph: “I remember watching a woman in the village store pick up a frozen sausage for a customer, then immediately warm her fingers against the palm of her hand.”
