I know what you mean, just walking from my vehicle to a grocery store, my breath is shortened and I feel like I am having an anxiety attack since I start to panic. Sure isn't a pleasant feeling.
I lived up there for the past five years, been back in Calgary for six months now.....I don't envy you.....

LOL
We're getting the same weather, but at least I'm not stuck there.
I hope I never go back to Fort Mac! Five years of working there was enough for me!

I was in Sundre until two days ago. I'ma hurting to get back to that southern weather!

Don't go out with wet hair!
I stepped outside after a shower and it froze, and when I went to play with it, I lost three inches in one spot.

But you can come up and we can go built a snowman!

6 months ago we had a high temp of 100. Last week we had a "warm" day at mid 30's. This week we have temps in the -20's.

To stay warm at those cold temps, you need a electric blanket, a cozy fire, and someone to snuggle with.

You guys are tougher than me!

If it were that cold where I lived I would sell every animal I had, move to a condo in the city, be a telemarketer from home and live off of my doomsday supplies till spring.

Tonight is is getting to about 4 above here.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I saw in the paper a few days ago that ND is second only to Montana in greatest variance in max temps. I believe it said that the hottest is ever got was 121 and the coldest ever was -60. A 181 difference in extreme temps. Montana had a 187 difference.

Not bragging. Just some useless info.

Right now it is -6 with windchill of -28F. Suppose to get only down to -16 tonight.

My dogs went to run outside for a morning pee and got into a head on collision with a snowbank.
I fell off my ramp cause I couldnt see it for the snow. Good thing the landing was soft!!
