    Goes without saying, actually. There's ONLY ONE.

    And it's FRIGGING COLD.

    Did I mention that winter has been a bit harsh in spots this year?

    I generally do - I have about 1.5 km walk to work that I do daily.
    I think my record was -52C with wind chill.

    Just feeling it today because the wife was sick so I took the truck to work. Didn't dress as heavily as normal and so the block from the parking lot to work was pretty chilly, then we lost heat in the building for a bit.

    But, yes, EMBRACE or DIE. That's about it.

    Good guess. Place called Flin Flon, about 600 km north - west, right on the Manitoba / Saskatchewan border.

    Pretty similar climate - despite the extra distance north we are often warmer because we don't get the same amount of wind, usually.

    Central Manitoba - just north of the 54th parallel, right on the Manitoba / Saskatchewan border - little town named Flin Flon.
    Home of Bobby Clarke (Philadelphia Flyers).

    That's unusual, although today, with wind chill, it's about -37C.

    Muffin.

    How do you bear it?

    I actually will put up with the cold because that makes the summers so much more wonderful. Plus which we don't get hurricanes, etc.

    Mind you, the forest fires this summer sucked big time ...

    Hurricane is basically strong noreaster, stronger wind and no snow. Afterwards we don't have to shovel any sand...plus were tuff enough. Swimming with gators and sharks ya know

    I'm an IT guy so I'm inside, at least.

    My son works for a window / door installation outfit - he's had some pretty nasty days.
    The last week or so he's only worked about half the days, the other half they didn't even try.

    I've lived all my life in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, so -20 is the point at which I put on my ski pants. Since I walk to work I'm moving consistently - that helps a great deal.
    Well, that and we're just TOUGHER out here!

    I don't even try and use a phone outside in this weather, although my old Kobo e-reader can last about 15 minutes before the screen fades out ...

    You sound like me describing a blizzard - "yeah, well, it was only a 2 day blizzard and I had snow tires on my truck, so it was no big deal".

    I vividly remember driving to my Dad's for Christmas - we were 15 minutes ahead of where they closed the highway down - when the wind gusted up you couldn't see past the nose of the car. Just kept driving ... that's what ya do.

    Nice to have a building to work in. Us Trades people work in the elements. As long as we keep ourselves in Motion we are an Unstopable Crazy Canuck....🇨🇦

    Yes. I recall having this conversation. There's always that chance that there are 2 different forum members from Flin Flon, lol.

    Yeah, it's SUCH a HOTBED of BlackBerry holdouts!

    Actually they did sell a decent number of PRIVs here's, although the mining company went Apple for their devices a few years ago and that really hurt BlackBerry sales.

    All this coldness talk reminds me I haven't been to "Carnaval de Québec" in years. Think I'll pass this year too.
