Brrrr, or Why We Left the North Country

This doesn't look too bad for a January forecast ..... except that it's actually Vernon temperatures. It was -19C plus windchill in Falkland this morning.

In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find spot in Canada that isn't feeling kinda ucky (the 0C in the middle of BC is actually for Vancouver - and the 0C in northern Quebec and Labrador ... well really, you want to be there?

Shoulda moved to Mexico.
