Not nearly as cold as here. Good thing the winds are light or we would feel like -50s or 60s. Temperature on our back deck is a nippy -31 compared to the city's -26.

Last night, St.John's had a record low temp for Dec., with the air temps at -13C and the windchill at -27C. This is like -50C out on the prairies.

Thankfully our wind has died down and it is calm this morning, although still cold. Our thermometer reads -33 and it is -28 in the city.

I envy your sunshine, Sinc. At the rate we are going here in St.John's, we hope to see some real sun in the new year, 2009.

We got a lot less snow than they were "predicting", but the wind made it hard to clear it all up, and it kept drifting back into wherever it was shovelled.

The city did a poor job in cleaning up the roads, as usual, so everything was snarled beyond all belief. I can't imagine if the Golden Horseshoe got real snow storms, like they get Down East - the place would be crippled for months on end.

Of course, they closed the school it the same time our class finished - which I don't really understand because by judging by the premium parking space I had, we were the only class.

-6C with a windchill of -14C, which is still very cold for us here in St.John's. Strange having to go and push the snow rather than try to throw the snow. It is so light that it can't really be picked up in a shovel. So, I push it into the back of the garden with one of those snow scoops, which are great for this type of snow.

".... but I might need dynamite to get the end of the driveway busted." MacDoc, I know that feeling well. The worst was when we could not get outside in time before the end of the driveway froze. It was chest high and about 6 feet wide. My neighbor took a picture of me trying to carry away some of the mound of snow at the end of the driveway.
