It is -30C with a windchill of -42C right now.  Environment Canada is predicting the temp to warm up to +10C by Friday.  Welcome to winter in southern Alberta!

Think there isn't much relief from the cold anywhere this week, this morning in NW Ontario we're at -29°c with a wind chill of -40.  That's been the better part of the Christmas holidays fur us, didn't even get out for the usual camping trip as I'm still working on completing the hot tent set up, so cold camping didn't sound like much fun. 

Happy News Years

It as been no warmer than -30c during the day and down to -40 at night for the last week or so... I don't talk about windchill cause unless you go outside poorly dress windchill is bogus. It would feel like -48C right now(12:30) if I was to go outside in speedo!!

Just back from three nights out accompanying Undersky on an exploratory excursion into NW Ontario.

-26 during the day and -37 at night.

Fortunately it warmed up for our trek out today although the south west wind was soul destroying.
