    Yes indeed,
    The weather here on the wet coast has gone up fifteen degrees in the last week or so. Liked the snow too, and that it stayed a week is amazing for these parts. Shame that we've now got mudslides in North Van and I hope there are no more houses sliding away. . .

    We just got over the cold-spell, and a chinook came (warm air from over the mountains, melts everything). I was just outside in a t-shirt, and it's not that bad out.
     
  6. Yeah it's still cold in Montreal. I'll get back to you guys.

    Night's like this make me wish I didn't live in the basement, but also make me glad my bed is under the heating vent...
     
  8. I just got home after a nice evening out with the kids. Had a great time on the boardwalk (Steveston). Sat outdoors sipping an espresso while the kids chased after seagulls that were trying to take their fries. We then walked to Gary Point nearby and watched the kites (next to the river).

    Canadas weather is just fine, thank you!

    I may not be in Canada, but I'm Canadian. So I went outside. It is cold out today. I saw my breath. I actually had to do up my jacket. :D

    West coast weather is fine.

    East coast weather is sub-zero

    In the middle, sounds like so-so to sub-zero, depends on where you're at...
     
  12. I live in New Hampshire and it is about -10 F, and we are supposed to get 12-20 inches of snow in 24 hours (starting at noon) I think I will go out for a bit now then stay in for quite awhile...lucky Canadians :rollno:

    THE TRUTH IS REVEILED!!!!!!!!!!:
    Well that is what I was told when I got up, now the tempature is 2F and here is supposed to get 6-10' south of here is getting 10-20.

    Well, I'm not a Canadian, but I can see Canada when I'm in downtown Detroit. It's a friggin' blizzard (though probably not be Alberta terms). We've got about 6" in my yard and still coming.

    Peace,
