2018 is already a year for extremes.

On the topic of deadly-cold conditions, Mike Carmon, senior meteorologist at the Mt. Washington Observatory, told the Times, "We basically just start saying it's stupid cold outside".

The temperature atop New Hampshire's Mount Washington plummeted early Saturday to an astonishing minus 36 degrees Fahrenheit, making it one of the coldest places on the planet. The wind chill could make the air feel as cold as 100 below zero.

According to the report , the participants were told to act normal and not answer any questions by anyone regarding the event. Another participant, Deli Meehan, stated, "I don't like trousers anyway".

With much of the Northeast and Midwest feeling like a block of ice, the temperature here in the high peaks of New Hampshire's White Mountains was forecast to drop to 40 degrees below zero overnight Friday.

The cities that tied for first place at -38 degrees Fahrenheit were Eureka, a small research base in the Canadian territory of Nunavut, and a city in East Siberia called Yakutsk.

As of Saturday morning, the wind was gusting at over 100 miles per hour at the summit, which is 6,288 feet above sea level, according to the observatory's website.

Monster Hunter: World is said to introduce a living, breathing ecosystem in which players strive to become the ultimate hunter. The games have always been impressive in scope if perhaps a step behind in the visuals department from time to time.

Not surprisingly, a number of the locations on the cold-spots list that the observatory tweeted out are in Canada.

This is a great time to mention that climate change is happening folks, and these kinds of weird weather phenomenons are only going to get more common into the future.
