Our Christmas became, almost in a matter of hours, a white Christmas. Out of no where we are dealing with low, low temperatures and snow sticking to the ground. For all of East Texas, this is quite a change from our 100 degree summers and mild winters. But, we have to keep in mind that we are not nearly close to how cold it can get.

Russia is known for its extremely cold temperatures and vodka drinking. The longer you stand out in the cold, the more you understand why they drink so much of the alcohol.

It's cold! You need something to warm you up. Seems from this video that boiling up some water won't even stand the freezing degrees. This shows the unbelievable freezing ability of below zero temperatures.

Watch this and feel grateful that it is a mere 30 degrees here in East Texas.
