Do you have a feeling that this winter is very cold? Think about the people who live in one Russian town. They say that they live in the coldest town on Earth. The name of their town is Oymyakon. The town is in Siberia.

The temperatures very often go down to minus 60. The people say that these low temperatures last sometimes for ten days.

There is another special thing in their town. It is a horse. The horse lives in these low temperatures. The horse is small but very strong. The horse can live through very cold winters.

Difficult words: coldest (most cold), low (down).
