Winnipeg awakens to the coldest Christmas in 20 years

Winnipeg awoke to its coldest Christmas morning in two decades, as the overnight temperature plummeted to –30.1 C as of 5 a.m., according to Environment Canada.
The high for Christmas Day is forecast to be –23 C. That's about 11 degrees colder than the average high for Dec. 25 — and the coldest Christmas morning since 1996, when the morning low was –34.6 C.


However, it was even colder elsewhere:

For those speaking Fahrenheit, those temperatures are -22F (-30C) for Winnipeg and -40F (-40C) for Peace River. Brisk!! LOL

Yeah, the prairie provinces get insanely gold at times because they are in the middle of the country with no large bodies of water to help moderate them like southern areas of Ontario and Quebec, where most of the population resides. I'm an hour NE of Toronto (roughly) and we are generally a fair bit colder than they are, being directly on Lake Ontario.

I have a friend who was stationed in Cold Lake. This was 20+ years ago now. He said he went running one day when it was -20F IIRC. He said that one of his eyelids froze. Don't know if there was permanent damage. I don't think so. At least he didn't say there was.

It was so cold here in Phoenix this morning, I had to use my wipers to wipe the dew off the windshield!

Been getting to 37 at night, which is freezing here

Cold weather creates a bond to your fellow Canuck, you see it in late March as we collectively congratulate each other for surviving another one.

I mean it though, 37 here is crazy cold!

My brother lived in Montana and he said it’s a different kind of cold here. 37 there is short sleeve shirt weather. Here you’re all bundled up. Maybe something to do with the moisture?

It all depends on what you're used to. Last February when my wife and I were in Florida there was one morning where it was about 65 degrees and we were already outside in shorts and a t shirt. An older gentleman who was one of the locals asked us "where's your jackets?" as he felt it was far too cold! I've been in Florida other times where I was still in shorts and t shirt when it was only 50 degrees and the locals were wearing thick coats and winter hats!

Good real world oil and battery testing for cold start-ups, not to mention oil filter media resistance to tearing testing.
