cold enough for ya?

I know you are suffering in Vancouver and Victoria with minus 8 temperatures. And I sure don't envy you the snow with all those ill-equipped motorists on the road. Blizzard warnings for the North Island, too .... Yikes! I hope things clear up for you soon.

Up here in Central BC we have this ....

Could get to minus 45. OMG!! And that's before windchill. Holy crap! The other day The Province had a poll, asking "It's so cold that...." and Art answered "...the chickens are laying frozen eggs!" I wonder if they published it.

We got up early on Thursday to drive to Prince George. I guess it would have been best to warm up the truck before getting in because at minus 27 C I was FREEZING!!! Art finds it so surprising when I feel the cold, he just has to take my picture. He should have waited til I was breathing out so you could see my breath.In my last post I mentioned the "enhancements" made to keep the truck warmer. It's too cold to go out there and take pictures right now, but this one shows the white foam cut to fit between passenger and door. There's also a piece stuffed under the seat, which greatly reduces the chance of any butts freezing off .... or shut, as the case may be.

So, I just looked out the window and it's snowing. I was always told it has to warm up to snow and that it just can't happen when it's this cold. I guess that's not true.
