Have to laugh about the Americans complaining that the cold fronts come from Canada. Growing up in MT, anytime it was going to get cold it was 'That cold Canadian front'... Now living in SK, I realize, first off, Western MT doesn't know what cold is, secondly, we got a snow storm two weeks ago that came up from the States. LOL!
This last weekend was incredibly cold. From Saturday to Monday we were at or below -40*C with wind chill. On Monday we had a wind chill warning, it was -45* with wind, and any exposed skin could get frostbit within 10 minutes.
Today, it's a balmy -16. Everyone is out and about and saying how warm it is. No wind. That's what makes the difference. I have noticed that at -32* add wind and snow (making it feel like -50*) it's a lot colder than -42* dead still with the sun shining. This happened once (the windy day and then the calm one) with those temps, on the minus -42* day, I was actually sweating under my bunny hug, scarf, ear warmer, and heavy coat, while walking out the 1/4 mile to get the cows. Wind is everything!
