HOLY TAMOLE! Yah, in edmonton i think its supposed to be like -48C. Only a few degrees warmer. Everyone from the rockies west in canada seems to be freezing their buns off. Where's the cash for a trip to the equator when you need it? lol. Gotta agree with you Mark!

To think its cold down her in southern canada, immagine iqualit and tuktayuktuk and those places. If we are considered tough for handling this weather, the northern folks are like solid steel, i mean probably like -60C! Hah, Tim, you and my father have it easy(my dad is in brandon right now)! Lol. We're on the verge of death over here! Nah, i think we'll survive. I must, i have to keep my herps alive.

Its funny that Chris mentions floodwaters as it just flooded here in Calgary the other day. Yep watermain break when its -30 C, sure glad it didn't happen on my end of town LOL it really caused problems when combined with the cold. Its also funny that he mentions TUK etc. (I got my TUK U t-shirt, been there done that, sleigh camps DOH!) because weather like this is the reason I quit working in the Artic. Heck I even had to plug my truck in last night. Guys like Derrick have probably had theres running for weeks straight now eh Derrick. Gotta love Fort Mac, NOT! Don't freeze them off people & now lets all join in prayer that the power stays on uninterupted, Amen! Mark

Sometimes I think to myself "Why do I live in this godfosaken arctic tundra", and then a good chinook comes along, and Calgary shoots up to +10 while Edmonton is still at -20 and I say "Oh yeah, that's why!"
