All the cold stuff is on it's way here,buy Saturday it's supposed to be +1C,we've had NO snow so far.
I heard BC had quiet a storm and Alberta,but it's expected in Alberta.

Frenchy,we take the kitties out no matter what the weather but they don't stay long in the cold.

Oh I am so jealous of the snow! It was around 65F (18.3C) today. I'm ready for some snow! I work for the school system and when it snows we get a paid day off. And around here, even the THREAT of snow closes schools down. People refuse to drive in it. lol

In Calgary today, its minus 39 Celcius - which is pretty much the same in Farenheit - with the wind chill . . . . minus 25 Celcius without the wind.

Have a nice day!!!

Oh my goodness!!! That is cold. My brother is in Fort Mac, and it is quite cold there as well. Brrr.

For once, weather wise, I am glad to be in Newfoundland. The past couple of days have been the coldest so far, and it is still about 5 degrees or so Friday it is expected to hit double digits again!!!

I love snow and all, but for the first time having my own vehicle, I really don't want to shovel

I've also been in Fort Mac when its minus 40 . . .

Back in the 1980's, when I lived in Grande Prairie in northern Alberta, it was minus 50 Celcius one morning . . . . there was another period where it never went above minus 25 Celcius for THREE WEEKS and was minus 40 pretty much every morning through that time. That wears you down.

Its a dry cold here though . . . not a damp cold like you might find out east.

Our small office has a young lass who grew up in Scotland and then spent her high school years and early working years in Sydney, Australia and is encountering her first Canadian winter . . . . and loving it. She's got the whole thing surrounded with big boots, big coat, big toque, big mitts, new skates and plans to learn to ski in the mountains . . . her enthusiasm for the worst cold imaginable is pretty funny.

That depends on where in the mountains you are. And around here the counties are so diverse with mountains and lower areas, that when teh lower areas close they close down the mountain schools as well. Out of curiousity which part of VA were you at? I between Roanoke and Lynchburg if you are familiar with that area at all....

We RARELY get snow for Christmas. It's usually so warm we have to open the windows when we are cooking. <sigh> I love snow.

Hi Chico! Yes, I'm fairly familiar with that area. That is one of the most beautiful areas of our state, imho. They also get a lot more bad weather than we do. For some reason, as the storm systems move east they break apart over the Blue Ridge Mts, where I am. Anyway, sorry to ramble. But yes, that is a gorgeous area.

Snow is evil but....

Its just disturbing that we don't have snow yet....I wonder if its going to be like a few years ago when it really didn't snow until AFTER Christmas....

and then boy did it ever snow! i remember looking for our car more than one morning and not being able to identify WHICH white lump was ours! and then the snowplows are coming and the towtrucks are lurking around, your shovel breaks and your car is stuck in the snowbank... then you finally manage to pull out but have nowhere to park your car for the next 24 hours because all the streets are snowbanks with the orange "no parking" signs! yeah. Viva snow in the city

Calgary, which is a dry place, frequently has "brown" Christmases . . . . not every year but its not unusual.

Here in Newfoundland which is known for some reason as snowy and cold, we often get no snow for Christmas. Sometimes we get snow before Christmas but it doesn't last. I find January and February to be the snowiest months.
