    Right now it's 5 degrees not counting the wind chill. When my son left for work this morning it was -4. Now they're saying more snow is on the way but no word on how much. I'm loving this weather and get outside as much as possible. I thought it might be fun to record or tape these weather reports of sub-zero temperatures then play them back during the inevitable summer heat waves.

    It's a good day. 21F, not too windy and bright sunshine. i'd have gone to the car wash but it is supposed to snow tomorrow and Wednesday. I'd take more days like this.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    How are you Canadian folks making out with all this?

    It's been miserable around here (southeast Michigan) as far as I'm concerned, but you guys are SO much farther north. How are you doing? (Or is this just, ho hum, another cold snowy winter, and you Yanks are SUCH wimps!)

    This has been the coldest winter for most of Canada in some time. Locally we had bad wind chills in November - last year just a couple of days in December. The wind chills lately are lasting at least a week.

    This morning in Cochrane, AB is was -33 C at 8 am; the wind chill made it -43C. That's -27.4 F and -45.4 respectively.

    At 9:30 am it warmed up to a balmy -30 C with the chill of -40 C. That's - 22F and - 40F. (Numbers are the same at - 40).

    But it's nice and sunny out!

    How many seconds does it take for any exposed skin to get frostbitten?

    I think 10 minutes or less. A friend and I bundled up and were going to do our 'walking group' outdoors. However, the zipper on my long coat separated up to my chest - not good. Plus, any exposed skin on my face was hurting after about 3 - 5 seconds exposure.

    We went for coffee instead!

    At the start of the Olympics, there was a feature on Siberia on TV. They said the temps got down to 50 below. I thought of you, Candace, and your walking group.

    Coffee sounds like a much better idea!

    It amazes me that the temp actually drops as low as -40c and less, and people go out and about and do stuff lol. Cold for us is -2c .

    The crazy hot summer is really upsetting me . The sooner autumn and winter are here the better, then happy me returns.
