Welcome to the second coldest place on the planet

This morning when I left for work it was -32C (-27F) but the windchill made it feel like -41C (-42F). Weather Now listed Calgary as the second coldest place on the planet.

I just checked it again right now. It is 3:32 in the afternoon, and Calgary is now the sixth coldest place on the planet. Pretty interesting.

Hollie whaat? You like the cold? I actually do too, but it is pretty cold. I don't think I could handle the Texas heat though! I'll sponsor you :)

I meant citizenship! I used to hate winter.. and then I moved here, and after 2 summers of 100+ temps for like 2 months straight, I give in! I want cold. All. year. long.

Whoa!!! That is COLD! I am no good in the cold, I can't stand the winter over here and we only get down to zero or close to it. Although the wind chill factor often makes it really much lower than that.

The pic is stunningly beautiful, but I don't think I could survive at those temperatures!

Although, it would be nice to have a 'white Christmas'! It's usually so hot over here in December that we're all sweltering (around 40 degrees C).

Brrrr! Oslo have about -7C and more cold coling in this weekend, and I thought that was bad! -32C is just off the charts!

Dress well you hear me? :)

It is supposed to warm up here. These temperatures don't stay around. It is supposed to be around -12C later this week and then we get a chinook (warm winds that come from the ocean and over the mountains) on the weekend and it is supposed to be 4 on Friday! It messes with you when the temp changes from -40 to 4...
