As Antartica experiences its summer season, Chicago gets hit with winter. Often it gets super cold in Chicago, and it makes me wonder if we ever get colder temperatures than Antartica. And I’m talking South Pole, Antartica.
On January 18, 2008, Chicago was just 14 degrees warmer than the South Pole at 3:50am.
