Currently, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with wind chill it is -45C. In fahrenheit that comes out to -49. Funny thing is, on Saturday I was running outside in short sleeves. The forecast for tomorrow morning, without windchill is for -38C (-36F).<br><br>
I always wonder about this time of year why I live here. Can never figure it out, nor can I figure out why my ancestors ould have chosen this particular climate to settle in. But its a dry cold.

Sorry for the cold temps. Here we are suppose to reach 70 today. Which is great now, but during the summer months you have to deal with triple digits and high humidity. I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

Those are negative numbers right Slow? As in 40 below!<br><br>
I must really be a baby. It has either been 2 degrees or raining or 2 degrees or raining every time I have ventured out lately. I'm miserable with training. Of course it's a wet cold....so that makes it MUCH worse.

-30 wind chills. This will be my last winter in Wisconsin. I can't take it anymore. I already told the boss and I'm getting my internal resume ready to send out. I'm done.

-37 with wc. I ran outside yesterday by the encouragement of dh, "hurry, hurry before the storm. The roads are clear" It hailed on me. and brave me turned down a ride from a passerby, saying I was almost home. It was the longest 5 minutes of my life. Got home and stripped down and ran on the treadmill in bra and undies!!!<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Yup, those are negatives. Only -26 today, but the sun is shining and the wind is gone so it doesn't seem nearly so bad!
