Lots of Places are Colder Than Sochi Right Now
If the International Olympic Committee wanted to ensure cold weather for the Olympics, they had plenty of other sites to choose from. Here are 10 places worldwide where, as of this writing, it is currently colder than Sochi. All temperatures are in Fahrenheit. 1. Washington, D.C. (37.6 degrees) 2. Pretty much everywhere else in Russia. (It is -18.3 degrees in Yakutsk at the moment.) 3. Pigeon Forge, Tenn., home of Dollywood. (44.1 degrees) 4. Beijing, China, site of the 2008 Summer Olympics. (32 degrees) 5. The Norwegian pavilion at Epcot Center in Orlando, probably. (They really crank the A/C in there.) 6. Dublin, Ireland. (45.5 degrees) 7. Lawrenceburg, Ind., the Indiana town where slopestyle skiing bronze medalist Nick Goepper grew up. (31.8 degrees)* 8. Pyongyang, North Korea. (31 degrees) 9. That indoor ski slope in a mall in Dubai. (It has an “amazing mountain-themed wintry setting”—just like Sochi!) 10. Chamonix, St. Moritz, Lake Placid, Garmish-Partenkirchen, Oslo, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Innsbruck, Grenoble, Sapporo, Calgary, Albertville, Lillehammer, Nagano, Torino, and Vancouver. Come on, IOC: Stick with what works.
