So. We’ve just been through a record-setting cold snap up here.
On Thursday morning, it was minus 36 degrees Celsius with a wind chill that made it feel like minus 47.
That was the coldest, but the whole week was like that. On New Year’s Day, I didn’t take Nu for her normal walk. On Thursday, we just went into the vacant lot across the road and even then, she was limping with the cold on the way back.
Other areas had it worse, I know. Timmins and Montreal experienced wind chills of minus 52 and minus 50 respectively.
Still, that was cold.
Thankfully, we didn’t have an ice storm, like Toronto, or the resultant power outages.
Today, we were minus 4 degrees. Anyone who lives in a seasonal climate knows that in the winter, when it warms up, that’s when you get the precipitation.
So we had snow.
Environment Canada and the Weather Network predicted 10-15 centimetres. We had at least 20. Tomorrow, it will be minus 7 and they’re calling for another 10-15.
We don’t know where we’re going to put it all.
Corner lot. Big driveway.
This is not a bitching post. These are facts. You can check ‘em if you like.
I’m just sayin’. It’s WINTER up here folks!
That is all.
