Ah, Calgary Weather


Friday high: 0C (32F)
Friday Low: -3C (27F)

Saturday High: -20C (-4F)
Saturday Low: -21C (-6F)

Sunday High: -21C (-6F)
Sunday Low: -27C (-17F)

Sure, that's not as cold as I've ever seen personally (that would be -53C / -63F). Hell, its not even as cold as the few good cold snaps we get in cowtown (-40C/-40F)

But its a sudden and drastic change...which Calgary is notorious for. If you need me, I"ll be huddled under several blankets near the fireplace on sunday.

Yeah.. Last night at 11:30p.m. the forecast here in southern Ontario said today it would be 3C with a light drizzle.

I woke up to -5C and snow.

Which meant my car doors were frozen shut after the rain yesterday.

Nice to know that Environment Canada and Co have as much luck out there as here in predicting anything worth a damn. ;)

That's alright... the abyssal void that is Kingston can chill /anyone's/ heart. ;)

Try not to kill anyone, ok? we're too far away to hide bodies.

It's funny how many people have tried to extract that promise from me when they found out I was headed home

At least you just asked me to try :D

Oh yeah. None of us are saints. All anyone can ask, truly, is "try".
Dec. 10th, 2008 05:29 pm (UTC)
I only ask that people try to chip in for bail money :D

I wish I were going to be huddled home all weekend. Too much to do though. :(

We on the island, too, will be having a severe cold snap on Sunday. It will go all the way down to -7C with a low of -9C.

So pft. If YOU think you have it bad...just think of us out here, suffering mightily through bitterly cold temperatures.

The infamous -20 C weather! I've been away from it for ten years now. And it would probably kill me if I ever went back. (Though I'm kind of curious about that and almost want to visit Calgary this winter just for a few days of real winter. I'm a wuss from Vancouver winters now.)

* expects a headache that day *

With enough spiked eggnog, you can knock that headache back a day or two at least! ;)

We went through the same thing yesterday. A high of 20 C, and then down to zero C before 6 in the peeyem. See, I told you that Calgary and Fort Worth had more in common than you thought!

We had the minus 20 last week. This week we had 35cm of snow, freezing rain, the closure of a major bridge, and a bus strike to contend with. Took me two fucking hours to make the 26km to work this morning.....

I already have a date with a blanket and a lot of candles from Sat through Monday. I even scheduled monday off! (Fuck it, I'm a puss, who cares? I'll be warm while everyone else freezes their asses off!)
