Random question:

 

What's the hottest and coldest weather you've ever lived through?

 

My hottest was 37°C in May 2009, and coldest was -10°C in March 2013. Both times I was in the United States on holiday (summer for the former, winter - and heavy snow - for the latter).

 

Care to share? :)

I did a wildlife photography trip in Canada in winter and was out working in -46 C.

 

 

 

Hottest is probably the UAE at somewhere around 42C. 

 

 

 

Of the two, I would rather be in the Canadian option!

Living in the Netherlands back in he 70s, I was about 10 I think, I recall the temperature dropping by about 7 degrees in the space of an hour from just above freezing to below.

 

It had been and was  raining and that turned to a layer of ice which actually allowed us to go iceskating on the footpath.
