Inside the Polar Vortex


I'm staying inside with my cup of tea, my class prep (classes start Tuesday) and hopefully my paints.

      After 15 years on the Prairies we know how to handle the cold now. Actually, this will come back to haunt me in March but I prefer Prairie winters to winters I've spent on the East coast, Vancouver or the UK. Yes, it's a dry cold and you can actually enjoy winter when it's not so cold.

  3. Very good idea! (Seattle is about 34°C above that...)

  4. Yikes, that looks cold... the Uk would grind to a complete halt.

  5. Hang on to that cold air! If you let go it might wander east. A couple of weeks of damp minus double digits had been enough for me. Bring on the rain! (I think I'm acclimatizing)

      Did you survive the dump of snow ok? Katie got rejected from Winterpeg and then flew into Halifax via TO arriving at 1am the next day.

  6. Pleeeeease, make the new semester stay away for another week or so! I'm nowhere near ready to go back and am delaying syllabus revisions as long as humanly possible. Stay warm!

    Best Regards,

  7. That does look a tad chilly. Some vigorous wargaming should keep you warm.....

  8. Dear God, that's as cold as anything I experienced in Medicine Hat. The coldest it's gotten in SW Ontario these last few weeks is -15 but as the missus remarked yesterday, the cold here is nasty, wet, bone-seeping cold that makes us wish we were back on the prairies.
    Stay warm and good luck with your course prep. My semester starts today, but as a lowly grad student all I have to do is go to class, look attentive, and say the odd interesting thing.
    Cheers,
    Michael
