November 22, 2010 How cold did you say it was going to be?

A picture from a couple of winters ago -- but that's pretty much what we've got right now.

Sunday was the official first day of winter here in North America.  And by North America I mean Canada.  It started getting cold last Wednesday.  Things got kicked off by a good old winter storm which brought us a bunch of snow.  Then on Thursday the tem

perature started to plummet.  We had -15’s (Celsius) through the weekend, and woke to -21 this morning.

The temp continued to drop throughout the day — we reached a balmy high of – 21.  By the time I left work it was – 25.  At 6:15 when I left for my yoga class it was -28.  By tomorrow morning we’re only going to get a couple of degrees colder.  It should be – 30 at 6 a.m., BUT the windchill will make it seem like – 42!!!

Is it any bleeping wonder that I hate winter!

I will do my best to be positive — but it would sure be a helluva lot easier if I didn’t have to face going out into that tomorrow.

Good night, sleep tight and dream of tropical breezes.
