-30 degree Celsius = -22 degree Fahrenheit

Cold enough indeed, not counting the wind chill.

Remember reduce the electrical output in mass by turning off the nuclear reactors, and shut down coal production and use for coal powered electrical geneartors -- one wonders how good of a full public grid Russia has for natural gas fired electricity power plants?

I have lived in Canada all my life minus -20 to -40 celcius is normal winter weather here, and minus 20 is normal for northern USA as well. In Toronto for instance the summers are between 18 and 40 plus in summer and -10 to -35 in winter.

It's not the temp. that concerns me, it's the severe drop in temperature. Not a cold snap, more like a flash freeze.

^This^

Sudden drops in temp are normal in northern climates.
We have had it drop over 30 degrees in less than an hour, it's winter, it happens. Flash freezes take place every year.

You have to dress for the weather. -30c can be quite invigorating to walk or shovel in. Burns mega calories.

"Abnormally low winter temperatures in Russia continue to claim more and more lives. Twenty-one people froze to death in only one day; 147 others were hospitalized with frostbite. The cold weather in central Russia is not going to get any warmer soon. On December 19, the cold has reached St. Petersburg, where temperatures fell below -20 degrees Centigrade. It is 30 degrees below zero in the Ivanovo region, -22C in the Kaluga region, and -25 in Tver. In Moscow, for example, the cold snap came on December 15 and will last until next Wednesday, forecasters say. At the weekend, night temperatures will drop to 26 degrees below zero Centigrade."

unless you are homeless, I have seen dead homeless people in downtown Calgary who froze overnight. Russia probably douse not have social services as good as ours mind you I know next to nothing about today's Russia and how good the social programs are there. You would think being Russia most of the housing would have excellent heating and insulation but maybe all the money is still going to the rich instead of the needy.
