    I live in southern Manitoba and up until mid-January we had been having really abnormal temps, much warmer then it normally is. I think that was through most of the Canadian prairies and the Northern US. On Christmas Day we were sitting in lawnchairs outside because it was so warm! Everyone was wondering where the heck winter was!

    Fast forward to this past week, day time highs are anywhere from -15F to -25F and the night time lows are around -30F. And thats just the air temps, this morning when I got up for school the temp with the windchill was -45F. http://i705.photobucket.com/albums/ww52/saskerr/Decorated images/cold.gif
