Living in the World's Coldest Town

We are familiar with the Siberian towns of Yakutsk, Oymayakon, and Norilsk, only because they are very cold and inhospitable. But the town with the coldest recorded temperature on earth is also in Siberia. Verkoyansk has recorded a temperature of 90 degrees below zero! That's -67.8 centigrade. Verkoyansk is also notably hot in the summer (go figure), so it has a second world record for the largest temperature differential. Half as Interesting gives us a short lesson in temperature and meteorology that explains Verkoyansk, and also some trivia about what living in such a town is like.
