    It started Sunday evening and slowly got colder and colder.

    It is supposed to start "warming' up Thursday (by warming I mean a not -30 but like low 20s).

    Pretty brutal out. Work got cancelled yesterday and today.

    At this point it's pretty much all of Alberta and Sask that are this cold.

    I now know what my grandparents meant when they said it's so cold I ache - I was having aches yesterday and I will assume today.

    getting old <{cruzshake}> just not worth it. LOL

    I actually prefer the cold & snow than very hot and humid weather, so I feel for the TS.

    I don't mind snow and reasonable cold.

    But when it's this cold it's just really too much.

    True you can always just get heaters and stay in and warm up - or drink a coffee or something. I cannot sleep if it's too hot.

    Extremes in temperature is not fun either way (too cold or too warm).

    Lived in Australia for a year and realized I'll take the cold over the hot any day of the week. Step outside in Perth in the Australian summer and your t-shirt would be soaked from sweat in 10min + you feel lethargic as shit when it gets hot. Cold at least for me tends to have the opposite effect.

    But anyway AB these days goes through a cold snap that seems to last 1-2 weeks and then it's done. Next week it's supposed to be -4C or something like that.

    From my understanding, this year the jet stream hasn't been dropping South at all, trapping all of the cold air up there. It is super cold in Alaska this winter too. I think that supposed to change soon as I saw that temps are going to start dropping in Chicago and out East in the next few days.

    Yeah, I was raised there. Now at my age I’ve figured out I want a better, frostbite free life for my family.

    Welcome to old age, man. BC isn’t much better, but the deep freeze is supposed to end after the weekend.

    Currently in Australia but I'm from England. I've lived in Canada for a year also.

    I think it's just me but I don't mind the weather. I would rather take a -30 Toronto day or a 40 degree day in Queensland, Australia over a 10 degree, always cloudy, wet England in the winter. Hell, England in the summer isn't great either. I've been in Australia since August and it's probably rained just over 10 times. And that includes spells of rain that last an hour.

    Bad and good for both. Heat, you can still do stuff. It's good for your joints, you don't ache as often as you would in the cold. I hate sleeping in the warmth so that's my biggest thing.

    In the cold, it's fine as you just wrap up if outside but the biggest thing for me is travel. I'm not just talking about England cold either where there are times in the winter trains get cancelled because of "leaves" or shops and office shut down as we get less than an inch of snow. When it's past -15 say, not in ENgland, perhaps in Scotland though, when you get a lot of snow it disrupts travel, it can ball up the smallest of plans.

    I loved winter and cold places but being in Australia has changed that. I do like living in a warm place and I get the frustrations that it brings but it's the same for really cold weather. I'd pick both over a typical English month though. Even in the summer it can rain for weeks. What a joke.

    Getting different seasons is good for me
