Frickin' flat out cold here today.  Lows in -33 C range with windchill tonight down around -50.

sorry Brent - but all that comes to mind is the South Park Movie:  "**** Canada" (or at least her weather)  :o

Less than a week ago (Wed), we were hit with 12" of snow.  Today we hit 12C (54F) and it's all gone.  Bizarre.

0 Degrees.  Feels like -17.

That may be the coldest it's been here since I moved up north.

We're at about 0 tonight, and windchills below zero...  Kind of worse than usual, but definitely not something we haven't seen before.

Brent...  The irony in our weather?  They played the outdoor highschool classic (hockey) at the two big parks north/south of the city.  Almost perfect conditions (snowed a lot overnight). :)  It made me laugh.

That's totally Murphy's law in action right there Jesse.  Same sort of thing happened up in Whistler and around Vancouver last year after the Olympics - cold spell, snow - perfect weather, just too late.

Yeah, but at least the high schoolers got their winter outdoor games in I guess. :)

Wide assed rinks too...  Really old school.

******* hate it... it's been warm here after the major dump of snow this month which we need another 5.5cm to tie the reecord set in 71 of 66cm, so far we have had 60.5cm... been above zero the past few days, streets graded & the alley's are ****... just getting home from work & turn into the alley & bang... stuck... I called AMA & it's a 24hr wait... **** that, walked 2 houses to my garage & grabed a shovel... shoveled my way out in 15mins... going to 7c today & then back to -15c for the day & -22c for the nites... in 2012, the Earth will burp & game over man... no more **** to shovel...  :P

Yeah, but that's the beauty of the interior.  You'll remember your former home, like mine, has no hope of the snow going away.  And this year it just keeps coming.  I'll have to snap a pick because it's been nutty koo-koo this year.  4" of snow, then stops a couple of days, then 6" of snow, stops, 3"......   Even weirder because we've been some serious cold in January but it keeps snowing.  Unlike Dale we never got above freezing (which is good in one sense) so we didn't get the icy crap but man, I was out a couple of hours this morning after shoveling and there's more snow on the driveway now than before I shoveled and it just keeps coming.

I guess it is like 4 degrees today with the wind chill and we have a winter storm rolling in tonight all the way through Wednesday night where we are expected to get anywhere up to 20 inches plus some 45 mph winds.  should be fun....

and add that on top of all the snow (like 80 inches) we have.
