Baby – It’s Cold Outside

Graham SaundersI mean really cold, unseasonably cold, and it’s not even winter yet. Technically, Winter begins in three days, December 21, with the least amount of daylight and the longest night of the year.

Did you know that 35 below Celsius and 35 below Fahrenheit are the same?  While it is not that cold here in Thunder Bay, it has been up at the Albany River. Tonight’s low will be about -13 (f) warming to about 6 above on Friday – this is a warming trend. However, it has been -30(c) earlier in the week.

Our guests from the US know we have opened the door and dropped this cold air into the US recently. And how about those ice storms from the lower Midwest all the way up through New England?

My podcast today talks about winter, defines exactly what a blizzard is, and looks back in history to a very deadly winter storm.  listen to it here

Oh, and Happy Holidays + all the best in 2009,
Graham
