20 My House This Winter

My House This Winter

Posted on December 25, 2012 by team


How does a house look inside when the temperature outside is -59C (-74.2F)? Come to the city of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, to see it with your own eyes. Just imagine for a second how cold it is!
Such temperature has been in the city for several days already!

    No heat? Or really shitty windows?

  2. Osip says:

    The problem is not so much with the temperature, instead the humidity. There must have been a water leak.

  3. Gordski says:

    Looks a lot like that great scene from the movie “Dr Zhivago”.

  4. DougW says:

    not enough insulation. Condensation and ice from cooking and breathing. That or frozen pipes and drains. That’s COLD

      Yes, I think there’s something phony about this. Even a broken pipe would not cause all interior surfaces to be dripping with what looks like cake frosting or sprayed insulation (like asbestos). Tricked- up photos? My cabin got -20 F. inside, for weeks, and no ice crystals whatsoever inside.

  5. Bruno says:

    Cheyner temperatures that low will heat systems to fail. Which is what is happening in the cold snap.

  6. ptc says:

    WHAT? You say in TV they said -60 degrees? Impossible ! There is only -40 ! Ah, maybe they mean temperature OUTSIDE.

  7. Dave says:

    I don’t believe that it got as low as -59C. Lowest ever temperature in Asia was -68C. Lowest ever in Kazakhstan was -51C. Seems a bit far-fetched. Looks more like humidity than extreme cold.

  8. slam13 says:

    It is all because of water vapor condensed on the cold things due to the temperature drop.
    And each time someone open any appaptment door, it adds some ice.

  9. The Weight of the World says:

    So, in winter the building gets frost inside, so in summer it gets trees and flowers? What about Fall and Spring? Kidding!

  10. Jane says:

    In extreme cold, pipework often fails, producing a plenty of steam which crystallizes on th ecold surfaces.

  11. Ivanna Benderova says:

    I see s*it like this and i’m glad I was adopted by Americans. Soo glad I didn’t grow up in Siberia.

  12. Steve says:

    Only the toughest people can survive in such extremes!

  13. komar says:

    nonsens,
    these flats are abandoned

    “Dr Zhivago” –

    dont forget ==>Hollywood Hollywood

    Unless you have been in sub 0 tempritures you guys can not comment.

    Well, it says here that this is Karaganda in Kazakhstan. I don’t know of any other Karaganda’s (outside of Kazakhstan)…So one thing I’d like to correct is the Tº. The officially recognized lowest temperature measured in that city is −42.9 °C (−45.2 °F), recorded in 1938. Actually the Kazakhstan lowest, is quite above the mark mentioned in this article: -51,6 (recorded at Astana, the capital city of the country). So the folks are exaggerating here :)
