You think your weather is bad?

Posted by   + Show Post

This is what I woke up to:

-30 C (-22 F) all on it's own, but thanks to that super duper wind it is -42 C (-44 F). At almost noon it has warmed up to a balmy -27 C, still -38 C with the wind chill.

Although I very much doubt it, can anyone out there beat this?

I can't compete, but I can almost relate. It was 4°f this morning and I got my car stuck in my driveway in about 2 ft of snow, at last half of that is fresh snow that was plowed into our driveway between 3 pm yesterday and 9 am today.
Our windchills have been below zero though, of course it hasn't been terribly windy. I'm lookingforward to heading 5 hours south on Thursday to warm up a bit. Of course it means packing half my sons clothes so we are prepared for anything

I knew I could count on the Canadian mommies to make me feel a little better haha.

Quoting D.O.E.:

Very Very Cold Outside

Cold-Winter-Day 2

Make sure you're completely covered if heading outside. Southern Saskatchewan is feeling the brunt of winter.

Wind chill warnings went out early Sunday morning for a number of areas including, Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford, and Humboldt.

For now, temperatures have plummeted to about -40 with the windchill. By mid-week, the province should get back to normal temperatures for this time of year.


Wind chill warning issued by Environment Canada for
Moose Jaw - Pense - Central Butte - Craik

Extreme wind chills

A cold Arctic airmass pushing into Southern Saskatchewan with winds in the 20 to 30 km/h range will combine to produce extreme wind chills in the minus 40 to minus 43 range over the warning area. Extreme wind chills are expected again in Southeastern Saskatchewan Sunday night and  into Monday morning.

At these extreme wind chill values frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes.




yeppers, i am right there with ya. getting itchy for spring. we have had one hell of a winter, last year we had barley any snow, and wore hoodies all winter, not even jackets.

I love Canada, but DAMN the winters are a bitch! We get to -30 C and easily colder in winter, and in summer it's a complete flip to +30 C.

No, we're not insane enough to live in Canada, eh!
