Love, Regina Style

I saw someone in London complaining on their blog or Facebook profile because they had to go to school when it was -12.  All I can say is please look at the “feels like” line on the screencap below.   Also “please don't ever whine about -12 again!” 

Being a good Saskatchewanite, -41 didn't stop me from taking my beautiful wife out for supper and a show (although I admit, I felt like my eyeballs were going to explode walking to the restaurant.)  We weren't the only ones out enjoying the weather though – Saskatchewan's Premier came in to have a meal and sat in the table beside us! 

The show was a Jimmy Buffet Tribute band (true romantic, that's me.  Just kidding – it was my cousin's pick because he and his wife are big fans.  But when it's -40, it's nice to sit in a theatre drinking pina coladas and listening to white man reggae.)

    I don't know what -41 “feels like” and I Never want to find out. Ever. The people of Saskatchewan are my new heroes this week, trek on fair friends…and good luck.
    PS What exactly are 'ice crystals'?

    I was wondering what “ice crystals” are as well. Is that like in T2 when the bad guy gets frozen with liquid nitrogen?

    You know how you know what something is…until you have to describe it. Here's how I would've described ice crystals – “they're like snow except when it's so bloody cold that the 'snow' is little pellets of ice falling to the ground.”
    Thought I better double-check so here's what I found at's glossary:
    “Precipitation in the form of slowly falling, singular or unbranched ice needles, columns, or plates. They make up cirriform clouds, frost, and ice fog. Also, they produce optical phenomena such as halos, coronas, and sun pillars. May be called “diamond dust.” It is reported as “IC” in an observation and on the METAR”
    Yeah, that's way better than my description.
