I've always been curious about how people deal with extreme cold climate.
I grew up in a relatively cold climate, no heat in my bedroom at all. Frost on the walls and you could see your breath when you got up in the morning.
Not much to deal with, you just live it. I remember the mad dash to get into clothes that were stiff from the cold, and that doing so wasn't overly pleasant. But life carries on. No different than dealing with extreme heat and humidity and the issues that come with that (can't sleep, sweating, etc).
Conversely I can remember snow being piled up as high as the barn roof and spending a good part of a winter mining and tunnelling through it. How many youngsters have a 2-3 story high snow fort?
