It was minus 15C yesterday when I went outside to clear the fresh snowfall.
I must be getting soft.
I actually donned a light sweater for the occasion. My threadbare light t shirt wasn't enough....
Winter is on it's way. Almost time for a jacket now. Might have to dig out the gloves too.

As a 14 year old boy, I lived in Edmonton in 1969. We had a record cold snap that lasted for weeks. It was a bit chilly there.

Highly unlikely anyone here remembers that.

In fact, tucked away in my filing cabinet is a newspaper article I clipped from the Edmonton journal after it was all over. I kept it for over 50 years.
It was still Farenheit back then.

I remember it well, it was proceeded by a thunderstorm and a good rain which left the whole city a sheet of ice. I was living in west Edmonton and working in St Albert. Driving was awful.
Those temperatures were in F. It was before we change to metric.
I had one of those certificates. I must have used it to light a fire in a subsequent cold snap.[emoticon]

I'm sure you all have heard of a "three-dog night," right? Nights that are so cold that it takes three dogs to keep you warm?
Well, here on the rez we've had a few three-wagon nights...

Aha! I didn't think anyone would remember it here. Yes that was something to remember. We were wondering if it was ever going to warm up again.
I lived on Dovercourt Ave and walked every day to Sherbrooke High. There was no such thing as drive your wimps... I mean kids to school. Temperatures didn't matter, we walked.

My dad was born and raised in a small town in Saskatchewan.
He used to tell the story of walking 7 miles to school, bare foot, in -40 weather, with snow and wind, and up hill both ways.
In 1971 Saskatchewan held a “provincial” Home Coming.
When we got to my dad’s little home town... I found out my dad was fibbing... there are no hills in Saskatchewan... ( grin)
