  He noted that residents live off a diet of primarily meat due to the fact produce are unable to survive in the freezing temperatures.

  他注意到这里的居民主要食用肉类,因为在极冷的温度下,农产品根本就无法存活。

  Because the ground is always frozen, there is little indoor plumbing and most bathrooms are outhouses and cell phones and car engines are constantly in peril of freezing over.

  由于地面一直结着冰,室内几乎都没有水暖设备,大多数浴室都在外屋。手机和汽车发动机经常有被冻结的危险。

  If cars aren't left running outside, they must be kept in a heated garage to prevent damage and people will walk but try and get out of the cold as quickly as possible.

  如果不在外面开车的话,就得把车停放在一个加热过的车库里,以防车被冻坏。生活在那里的人们也会散步,但他们会尽快摆脱寒冷。

  Chapple said he traveled to Oymyakon to find an uplifting story but said the cold created some new challenges in his photography. His lens would freeze over and became impossible to focus.

  察柏尔说,他去奥伊米亚康是为了收获一个催人奋进的故事,但是,严寒为他的摄影带来了新的挑战。他的镜头会被冻住,然后就没法调节焦距了。

  However, in summer the town can get up to 21 hours of light and temperatures can rise to an average of 73 degrees Fahrenheit in July.

  不过,夏天的时候,这个小镇的光照时间可达21小时。7月,这里的平均气温会升至73华氏度(22.78摄氏度)。
