January 1

I am sitting here freezing my arse off. I really can't believe how cold it is outside. That is a minus (-) 23. And, yes I know I live in Canada and should be used to this weather. Maybe it's just because I am getting older and tolerating it less and less.

As I sit here after looking at the local weather with the a recently updated weather report, I feel crazed. Not really but, here's an example of our weather for tonight.

Severe wind chill forecast tonight.

Arctic air associated with a bitterly cold ridge of high pressure continues to seep southwards across Southern and Eastern Ontario. This is expected to generate overnight lows ranging from minus 20 to minus 30. In addition a low pressure system near the Lower Great Lakes is expected to generate moderate northeasterly winds tonight and into Thursday. The combination of winds and Arctic air is expected to generate severe wind chill values (-40) tonight and then quite possibly again for Thursday night.

It is advised to dress warmly and cover any exposed skin as much as possible when heading outdoors.  NO REALLY?

I guess it could be worse. It could be snowing. 

A friend of mine, did one of those Polar Bear plunges for a local kids charity today. I called her nuts.
