The world is a cold, cold place. This isn’t just something you learn the first time your parents refuse to send you money to cover that month’s rent. It’s also something you learn when you venture to the far-north reaches of the planet any time during the winter. But just because a place registers daily temps in the negative 40s doesn’t necessarily mean it’s boring.
