This morning it was -47 degrees celcius with the wind chill. It warmed up to -46 degrees and will stay there most if not all day.

At least there are no mosquitoes.

well that definitely is cold! But at least it's constant.
Here in TX we get 81F one day then 32F the next during winter (kind of like between yesterday and today). I'm sick of going from sleeveless shirt to coat!!

Oh hey Bruce... I never realized you lived in Winterpeg. Thought it was just Chesseroo and I these days.

Interested sometime in a listening evening when we finally do one?

I feel for you guys up there, we have a high of 5 today as that cold front keeps whipping us from Canada.

Have had about 6 days now of 70 degree weather here and if it continues, work on the tile will cease and I'm taking off on the bike!!

Tried to walk the dogs this morning but they kept falling down (and they're only 5 inches off the ground). Almost 12 hours of freezing rain last night...

Also nearly tore the drivers door off my Magnum again. Pulled into the driveway, stopped, got out, car started sliding back down the driveway towards the road. Just got the door closed in time before it hooked the Jeep fender and got hyper-extended.

And this was in Toronto, far away from the wilds of Winnipeg. I'm gonna have to invest in wheel chocks and tiedowns.

Perhaps you should just leave the doors off of the Magnum, needing to explain how you managed to tear off the drivers door a second time would be interesting. Once in the new house you won't have such a steep parking area so that should help.

About a 100 degrees difference from Houston to there. I like cold weather, but that is ridiculous.

Grandma and I just walked into the house a few minutes ago. Even though it's only 75F outside, it seemed a bit stuffy, so we felt obligated to turn on the air to cool the place down.
