-20 in Northern Greece. Not something unheard of but it is not the usual either. We experience a low barometric coming from the far north.
What is the "-20" here? Celsius or the archaic units used in North America?
-20 Celsius, and we had the worst snowstorm of the last decades.

Re: If you could change one thing...
