Really Freaking Cold

I love winter, but the cold is a little ridiculous right now. It seems to be averaging around -25 C. The new addition to my cardio workout is trying to get home before my eggnog latte freezes solid.

Here's a video Richard made to show some friends from New Zealand what Canada is like in the winter. (Needless to say, they've decided never, ever to visit Canada in the wintertime.)

I've been to Edmonton in February. I have no interest in ever going back...

I'm loving the weather but thankfully I don't work outside! I think it was global who was reporting that the only place colder than the Edm Int'l airport over the weekend was a place in Siberia and that was only by a degree or two I believe. Crazy!

I've actually started to get slightly concernced...if it's this cold now, and it's not even officially winter yet, what's it going to be like in late January/February??? We could be in for some serious hurt.

Those Edmontonians are one tough breed! And this is coming from someone who lies in Calgary.

Holy shit!!
This is the 1st time that you guys have been colder than us since you moved up there. It's about time. ;)

It's ONLY been -10f to -15F, with -30F windchills for the past week here.

I thought they said we were supposed to have a warm, dry winter?

It's dry, but it definitely ain't warm.
February worries me too...February always has the coldest day(s) of the year. Yikes. Maybe we're tough, but we're not THAT tough.
