Could Be Winnipeg10 Feb 2007
You know the weather's cold when the best thing you can say about is "it could be worse, we could be in Winnipeg". Or when you can point out the little used fact that "-40 is where the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales meet".
Considering that cities have a heat island that raises the temperature by about 5°C, it's even colder than it sounds. The coldest I've experienced was -31°F on a sunny day in Minneapolis. (Minnesotans often brag about the wind chill, but I'm talking about actual temperature.)
By the way, it's not that cold here. It's a balmy -2°C with 5 cm of snow that will be gone by tomorrow evening.
