B-b-b-b-b-b-aby It's C-c-c-c-c-c-old outside!


Winter in Alberta.
Cold.
Damn cold.
Freeze the balls off a brass monkey, cold.

Not quite as cold as winters in Saskatchewan though. I lived in Saskatchewan for 35 years before I moved to Alberta 5 years ago. Winters up here can be pretty harsh. I specifically remember the winter that my middle son was born, it hit -40°C (which ironically is -40°F as well) for 17 days straight. You know what we called it? A bit of a cold snap. Talk about understating things.
