Thousands of vehicles have been buried; people are missing, presumed frozen; water & power supplies have been cut-off; and drifts as high as 6 meters have blocked key passes — welcome, Middle East, to the Grand Solar Minimum

Göle registered a bone-chilling minus 40 degrees on both Sunday and Monday night — a new all-time record for the entire province, busting the -39.8C (-39.6F) set back on January 21, 1972, according to the Turkish State Meteorological Service.


Other notable lows include Aşkale district’s -35C (29.2F); Kars province’s -31C (-23.8F); and the -26C (-14.8F) measured in central Ardahan. While the highest observed temperatures on Monday were the 0C (32F) in Iğdır; the -4C (24.8F) in Tunceli; and the -10C (14F) in Ardahan.

A large dam supplying water to the much of Turkey’s eastern provinces has been frozen solid due to the extreme temperatures. Public fountains have been transformed into fancy ice sculptures, and enormous icicles have dawned the eaves of buildings and weighed down utility poles.
