Doubt about temperature


Doubt about temperature
Is it ok to say:
"I got -17ºC in Vermont."
"I caught -17ºC in Vermont"

Does it sound ok? If not, how could it be expressed?
Thanks in advance.

I would say, "It was -17 degrees Celcius in Vermont."
In some contexts one could say, "I got -17 degrees," for example as the answer to a test question in science. 
Caught does not work.

If you are talking with a friend from another part of the world, you might say, “I had -17ºC in Vermont,” in response to “What temperature did you have?”
