We typically get 2-3 weeks of -25 to -35 here per winter. Just how it goes, price you pay for not living with alligators and 20 foot pythons

I hate it!  Twenty years ago it didn't bother me; it was part of life up here.  Ten years ago I would tolerate it as I knew that it would be over soon enough.  Now it seems as though winter drags on forever.  When my wife retires in two years we're gonna get the heck outa here!

That's cute :)

Kidding of course, the humid cold is BRUTAL in Southern Ontario. I grew up around Guelph and -25 is freakin cold there!

I love these 'weather in North America' threads although this one is a little tame. Last year we had some great photographs of 10 foot deep snow piled down the side of someone street, that what I need to see.
I understand that there is some extreme stuff in the area at the moment. Apparently people have been told not to breath outside, excellent, this is what I'm talking about.
It was cold here this morning, -3. I had to cover the car, but the good news is the course is still open, if a little bumpy.

I'm not really impressed unless we are talking -30F with windchill (-35C)

We get probably 7-12 days every year like that. It's not pleasant for sure but it's not like people panic when they hear about it. Just bundle up

A few years back I got a reading of -43C on my car when I turned it on. That's the coldest I have ever seen

We're approaching coldest I've ever seen. We got down to -65F last night with the windchill.
