"It's official, Chicago Is colder than parts of the arctic, Yukon, and Mars. Ok, this is quite a misleading headline. As the story goes on the explain... the temperature in Chicago plunged to -22° (F) by 6 a.m. on Wednesday. By comparison, it's 13° - or 35° warmer - in Murmansk, Russia, which is north of the Arctic Circle. It then explains that this is colder than some measurements made by the Curiosity rover on Mars, which is true enough, but the temperature on Mars varies wildly - as this blog explains - and CBS, to be fair to them, accept."
