8 of the coldest places in the world to live

The weather is changing again — a good time to look at some of the insanely cold places where people actually live. The citizens of places like Verkhoyansk and Yakutsk (both in Russia) live very different lives from you or me, at least in the winter.

The coldest temperature ever recorded was minus 128.6 degrees Fahrenheit in at the Russian research station in Vostok, Antarctica, on July 21, 1983. While none of these towns or cities gets that cold, some get frighteningly close to it. Here are eight of the coldest places in the world to live.
