Cold is always the absence of heat
"Cold is the absence of heat because the "thing" that is absent is kinetic energy; the vibration and movement of molecules. Heat is not the absence of cold because that would be saying the "thing" that is absent is the absence of kinetic energy, something of a double negative."

Wekweeti in the Northwest Territories confirmed a -51.9 C reading, which the agency says is Canada's coldest temperature in nearly four years.
Environment Canada meteorologist Terri Lang told CTVNews.ca on Monday that the last time a temperature that cold was recorded in Canada was in March 2017, when the mercury plunged to -54.7 C in Mould Bay, N.W.T.
"Across [the] Prairies, we're just getting some of that cold air that's coming down because the jet stream has looped far enough south. This is what happens every winter, and it’s what gives Canada its cold weather," Lang said.
Lang said the polar vortex is breaking cold records across the western provinces. She noted that the weather system has resulted in Uranium City, Sask. tying their all time cold record at -48.9 C while Fort Chipewyan, Alta. set a new record of -47.2 C.
In Ontario, the agency says cold temperatures and strong winds whipping across the Great Lakes have caused snow squalls to batter the southern region of the province, while parts of Quebec continue to dig out from last week's winter storm.
