Colder than the frost on a champagne glass!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association announced today that November was the world's 333rd straight month with warmer-than-average temperatures.

But tell that to the 1.3 million people who live in Novosibirsk, the capital of Siberia and Russia's third-most populous city, where temperatures are hovering around 40 below. During the day. Celsius or Fahrenheit? At -40, it literally doesn't matter. The average lows for December range from -15 to -22 degrees Celsius.

That means it's cold enough to throw a pot of boiling water out your window and, well, we won't spoil the surprise.
