That comment sounds like Fahrenheit, not Celsius.  I did 4 years of
undergrad work at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and we often had
to walk to class and all over campus in sub-zero weather.  But about -20F
it started to get painful to have any skin exposed, and -30 (the coldest I
experienced -- and that's without any wind-chill) really hurt.  When it
warmed up to merely freezing in early spring people (including me,
transplanted Floridian) literally walked around in shirtsleeves.
