Baby it's cold outside!

We're in the middle of experiencing our first Prairie deep freeze. I don't like it. I don't like it at all. On Friday we had major snow storm, about 15-20 cm on snow, with cold wind. Traffic was awful, cars were having trouble getting up some hills therefore it was gridlock which meant the buses weren't moving either. I called Shawn and told him what was going on. He picked me up from the train station, which is really out of the way. I was trying to avoid him having to drive but if he didn't, I would never have made it home.

Right now it's -29C. The high will be -23C. That's the most! That's not including wind chill. For the next couple of weeks it's not going to be any higher than -5C but that will be downright balmy!

Now I have to get serious and plan that trip to Hawaii or anywhere warm. How many more days until spring?

Sending you warm wishes. I like the sound of Hawaii. Maybe Santa will bring you a travel broucher.

Dang that is cold! Here I am sitting in 41 degrees and loving it. Wish I could get some of that snow. Stay warm and safe.

Yuck!! We are having the cold snap here but when there is 4cm of snow the city shuts down. I actually love the snow (being an Ontario girl) but everyone here is losing their minds with the cold!!!!!!
Hope it stays for the holidays next week!!!
