Correct: -40 is the same in both scales... but it didn't get that cold.

Coldest I saw was -34c. We waited until it was around -25c before actually going out for a hike in the snow. In these temperatures all the talk about gloves with which you can still operate a camera us mute. None of these gloves would do. The worst we endured was that when entering the forest you had to sign in (and sign out when exiting) and in order to hold the pencil you really had to take off your gloves. Again, no type of glove with which you would write your name would have been warm enough.
