"Lovely day for it -20....."

**** that. I'm praying for more Global Warming.


Great pics........terrible conditions. Nobody should be loading hay in sub-zero temps.........that's a summer-time, heat-stroke inducing pursuit.


**** Canadians.............

Thats only -4 Fahrenheit. Wait till it's -20 or -30 Fahrenheit. Not a fun time to be out in below zero weather, but if you dress for the occasion it's do able. It sure keeps the blood running though.

Those trucks look like a good wind would blow that load over.

Ahhhh, yes, Wedge, if you're use to it (like they are) I'm sure it's just another winter day. Looks bloody miserable though.

Gotta hand it to 'em, those Canucks must have anti-freeze in their veins.........;)

I was talking with one of our Canadian TBN members about that very thing a few years ago. I was saying how tough they must be to handle the very cold weather. His response was that they just wore 3-4 layers of clothing and that they got cold like everyone else. :eek:

D7E, Is that your provincial tree in the one picture? I've heard it's the state tree of North Dakote. :);)

3-4 layers?? Try 7 or 8! I'm no Canadian, but I'm very familiar with sub zero temperatures. You can tell when it's zero or below when your nose hairs freeze as you breathe in. In conditions like that I don't go out without at least 7 layers. If I get to doing something real physical, I'll sometimes shed a layer or two, but it takes all 7 layers to keep me warm doing easy stuff. One of those layers is a very heavy wool lined, duck canvas coat with a hood. I'll wear three hats if you count a stocking cap, the hood of my sweatshirt and the hood of my coat.

I love it in winter when Old Crusties in the coffee shop marvel to each other how it warmed up to double digits. Trust me. + 10 F feels nice and warm after a week of 20 below zero F.

Like Wedge40 said, though, "It's a dry cold". I'd rather deal with subzero temperatures that a humid 35 F. Anything less than about 10 below feels all the same.

One time when I was up in Montana, it was 20-30 below for a few days. When it finally warmed up to zero, man you should have heard the people on the radio, talking about no more jackets, just long sleeve shirts. :eek: It was noticeably warmer at 0 vs -30 though.
