I lived on a military base near Big Delta for three years (as a child). Know exactly what you are talking about.
One winter, the ACTUAL temperature fell off the scale which could only measure to -70 F. Every residence had an electric outlet on a pole in their parking space to keep the car from freezing. We kids were bussed (trucked - duce and a half) one block to school.
