Default Extreme Conditions

What are the most EXTREME weather conditions everyone has ever hunted in? How cold, hot, windy, anything? I'll start

Hot- 90 degrees.
Cold- 10 below 20 below w/ windchill. PRETTTY chilly for Virginia.
Windy- Not too high- 45 mph
Also hunted in a sleet storm, snow blizzard and hurricanerains.

Also hunted during the week of mid-term exams.. took my mind OFF the extreme conditions.

Hot - I'm not sure on what the high for the day was, but I've hunted in the mid to upper 90's in Sept.

Cold - Around -20 Also had a 20 - 25 mile an hour wind, so it was quit chilly.

Cold - 15 below 35 below w/ windchill.
Windy - 50 mph & neverover 30mph if I can help it, wasted time.
Hunted in a freezing rain storm @ 32 degrees 30 MPH winds, just RAW.
