Just how cold is it in Siberia?

I was talking to Shaan this week about the cold winter weather. The coldest ever English winter was recorded at -21 degrees. In comparison, Siberia, which is the northern part of Russia, is really really cold… in fact its average winter temperature is -41 degrees!

It is so cold in Siberia that if you take a bucket of boiling hot water and throw it off a balcony, the water will turn to ice before it hits the ground (so in about 4 seconds). Now that is cold!

If you don’t believe me…watch this video!
