Default Cold!

Here, temps are down to -11C right now. (which is about as cold as it ever gets) But I saw a weather station readout of -31C in Winnipeg, so I guess I can't complain

It was -41 with the wind chill here this morning and yesterday morning. School buses were also cancelled yesterday and today in the Nipissing District and Parry Sound District due to "extreme cold".

Got down to -20C on Wednesday morning with a wind chill of almost -30C which was the coldest temp in Waterloo since Feb 23, 2011... almost two years before.

Called a cab to get to work even though it's a five minute walk.

When I lived in Winnipeg, I used to catch a bus that took about 40-45 minutes to get me downtown rather than one that took about 20 minutes.... because the stop for the 20-minute bus was about a 7 minute walk away, whereas the 45-minute bus picked me up right outside my house. So I can relate. :P
