The wind is out of the NE… and that means it’s gonna get cold!

We don’t often get a visit from Old Man Winter, but it looks like we’re going to get very well aquainted over the next few days. Monday is a high of only -6 with a low of -10.

I grew up here in the valley, and i can only remember one time when I was in Elementary school (Grade 5 I think, so 1988?) when it was so cold that there was ice on all the puddles when we went out for recess. I remember because Dave Gibson wore shorts that day. 😀

I’m gonna go look over the EC records and see what the record is for lowest temperature at this time of year.

  1. Chris, Canadian Politics !! Parliment !!! OMG this contest is fixed like Brad said. So I asked the QUEEN !!! to interceed {like Harper did } and she granted “the contest fixed and Chris to be bandished naked in the snow to prove the exact time of accumulation of said snow !!! Ha

  2. lol! What does the Queen know about Snow?! Doesn’t it basically rain 365 days a year in London? 😀

    Ya never know… Elaine might have a chance tonight to get it if it starts early, but I don’t see any moisture anywhere close by right now on the radar.
