:lol: SylviaA your ticker is looking mighty good...3 more sleeps and you will be enjoying all that PV has to offer... :)

We are going to have some very nice winter weather.. Plus 15C by Sunday...
.....................
Winnipeggers who can stay inside should do so today. :shock: :)

Environment Canada has issued a wind chill warning for the city as winds gusting about 20 km/h make the air feel like a numbing -49 C this morning.

Winnipeg School Division buses were cancelled due to the extreme cold, as well as many daycares and clubs across the province.

While the temperature hovered around -36 C this morning, it is set to rise to -26 C before the day is through.

But tonight the extreme cold will carry on, with a low of -34 C and wind that makes it feel like -43 C.

Thursday should continue the cold spell with a sunny -25 C high.

Friday is still set to warm up to a relatively balmly high of -17 C.

Mother Nature could finally smile down on the city over the weekend, though, which could lead to a welcome high of 2 C on Sunday, if the forecast holds true. ( and look at this SylviaA...Not fair... day after you leave it warms up :x :P )

When we were waiting at the PV airport last weekend I overheard a conversation by a couple heading back to Winnipeg . They said they had stored their parkas / winter boots at the Winnipeg airport - in anticipation of a very frosty return . Why lug it if you can store it ?

I heard a cute question from a little girl to her dad on the flight down . While we were waiting for de-icing the girl ( about 4 or 5) asked her dad , "Daddy are there snakes on this plane ? " He reassured her that was just in a movie and there were no snakes aboard . :)

This is wierd. While most of North America is in the deepfreeze, we have record setting highs in Northern California. I'm enjoying it but worry about this summer's fire season. 72F today, and we are way under average for rain.

Well, it was a nice break of sunny springlike weather but it couldn't last forever. Back to grey, drizzly, dreary yuck.

Just when we thought that spring might be here, we get a dusting of snow. UGH! in the 30's here. Im making myself feel better by watching the PV webcams and turning my heater on high! Less then two months now... cant wait!
