-14 degree days
While Phil was in St Petersburg, we experienced the coldest week we have had since being here a year! The days were -10 to -15 every day. It was so cold that your nose hairs crystalised, and it was a very odd feeling. the boys were not allowed out to play during the week, it was too cold for them, and the ground was quite slippery with ice.
In our garden we have a tap that has a slow leak, a drip every 10-20 seconds. Over the week, the drops froze as they hit the ground, and we ended up with an icicle under the tap. It was pretty amazing. As it melted there was a hole in the top that Cameron was able to put his finger through.
