It's damn cold....the weather thread...


Recommended Posts

Just finished shovelling half of my sidewalks.  Had to come in and warm up a bit.  -27C (-17F) this morning.  By Tuesday morning it is going to be -38C (-36F).  Brutal.

I should have been more rich and successful like my sister and her Hubby who own two condos in Hawaii and go there during the winter each  year.

Yes, I live in Alberta.

It wasn't so bad when I was young, but as i grow older i am less tolerant of the cold.

the only difference is B natural vs. B flat 

Ok, sorry

How far are you from Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise? I would think that it is worth the cold for a few months just to be near such amazing beauty the rest of the year.

About 3 hours from jasper, 5 from banff.

I have relatives that have an acreage in the foothills of the mountains which I try and get out too as often as I can.

I've thought of moving from Edmonton for a while now, just can't decide where to go just yet.
