-46 coldest place on the contient



Why in gods name would someone actually live here....it is freezing out.  But we are a hardy bucnh of people and we just get on with it, and bitch about the weather every now and then.  Usually it is not this cold, and it does not usually get this cold until January.  The weather seems bad all over the world, ....greenhouse gases...climate control.  Well here is a little tale that invovled me and the weather.  Saturday night the shopper came home late, now hubby and I park in the garage, and she has to park outside on the driveway.  She has to plug her car in or it wont start, its really cold have I mentioned that.  Well she forgets and in the morning of course the car wont start.  So I say take my car, as that is the only one we can get out of the garage, as she has blocked hubby car in.  She goes out and comes home a few hours later, and instead of parking in the garage, she parks in the driveway.  A few more hours pass and she has to go to work, goes out to start my car, the battery is dead as she has left the lights on.  Did I mention it was really cold.  So we have three cars, one in the garage that cant get out, because the two cars in the driveway are dead as doornails and need a boost.  Now normally the car in the garage could boost the two other cars but it cant get out.  So I phone AMA (CAA) to come and boost the car, wait on hold for an hour,. and then the lady proceeds to tell me it can be up to 13 hours before they get here.  Did I mention its getting even colder.....So needless to say nobody did anything yesterday.  Today as 12:30 (lunch) the guy comes and boosts the cars.  Hubby did not go to work today as he works 30 miles out of town and had no car.  This little problem with the cars, did not endear the shopper to him..  Well anyway everything is back to normal in the household, and it is warming up to -30 so lets get the swim suits on.  And thats the weather...


EDMONTON — Edmonton's weather boasted two dubious distinctions Sunday: it was colder here than anywhere else in North America and it marked the coldest Dec. 13 in the city's history.




Environment Canada recorded a frigid minus 46.1 C, or minus 58.4 C with the wind chill, at the Edmonton International Airport at 5 a.m.,
