That's way too cold! I can't deal with 40's much less the temps mentioned above. High 70's today and expecting low80's tomorrow down here. Currently I'm sitting on my back patio wearing shorts, drinking a cold one, frying a turkey and watching the Duke game. No snow in sight!

I share your pain
I'm as bad as any northerner when it comes to one-upping folks about the weather (you call this a decent June snowfall...why back home...) but the fact is, once you start getting down into the minus thirties (in any language) it just sucks.
I love my show shoeing and my caribou hunting, but I love it a lot more when the weather stays above minus 20.

Warmer days ahead!

That is COLD! Being from Wisconsin, I can pretty much handle whatever mother nature throws at me, but once you get below zero, it doesn't much matter what the thermometer says. Skin will freeze, fingers and toes will go numb, etc. Had our first snow fall of the season last week...12 inches at our house and 18 miles away, on the shores of Lake Michigan, (where I work) it was raining! Snowing again today; supposed to get 5 inches. This is really hard to take after the mild winter we had last year. Our hopes of a January winter camping trip are waning. Its been really tough to see our TT covered in snow and ice. I may go into it this weekend just to check things out and make sure everything is still okay. And I pretty much have to go into it at least once a month or I tend to get withdrawals....

Warmer weather is on it's way, Sasks! Here in Calgary it's warmed up 20 degrees since yesterday's low.

When it gets down to -30s or below, I try to think of the positives, like how the cold keeps the bugs up here from outgrowing our pets, and keeps the mountain pine beetle from eating their way across the entire country!

So when I headed out the door this morning for work, it was minus 37C (minus 34 for you folks south of the medicine line) with the windchill bringing it down to -wait for it- minus 51 (minus 60 Fahrenheit).

According to the Weather Network, all next week is nothing but windchills in the high thirties/low forties ...(or is that low thirties and high forties...?) it's bloody cold anyways.

Anyone down in Arizona or New Mexico want to adopt a slightly used Canuck ?

Man y'all up north are a hearty bunch!
I am hating my teens and 20s at night. I can handle the 100+ a lot more than this cold- and I'm not even over the hill yet. Might have to move even further south when I get older!
