MADISON, Wis. – Have you ever dreamed of climbing Mount Everest, but did you think it was too cold?
If you would go outside This morning you have experienced all the cold of Mount Everest and more without the hassle of climbing.
The early morning temperatures in Madison dropped to minus 26 degrees Celsius, making the city one of the coldest places in the world and colder than the highest mountain in the world. However, on Mount Everest Wednesday the wind is 10 degrees colder than in Madison.
Here are some of the bitter cold winds the area experienced Wednesday morning. My breath immediately froze in my glasses and blinded me most of the day until now. How would you describe this cold? #wiwx @ WISCTV_News3 pic.twitter.com/IoIwaf4iGf

The City of Hell in the US state of Michigan reached Wednesday morning at minus 8 degrees. This not only means that hell is frozen over, but that it's actually cold outside of hell in Madison (a phrase that still does not make sense).
The wind will remain in the range of minus 30 to minus 45 degrees for the remainder of Wednesday. Therefore, try to stay inside as much as possible.
In Antarctica, the mild forecast at the Amundsen-Scott south pole station was minus 25 degrees.
In Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost city in the United States, it's minus 5 degrees.
Still no one takes (or wants to) take down today's cold crown of Verkhoyansk, Russia, which reached a temperature of minus 44 degrees.
