Hello my friends, I wasn't going to post anymore on the cold weather we have been having but since we almost broke a world record yesterday I just had to tell you. Now doesn't everyone talk about the weather when there is nothing else to say.
This morning at the Edmonton International Airport the thermometer read -59 with the wind-chill. I know it is hard to believe eh!. I live in Morinville, north of the airport and my thermometer showed -48 but it doesn't show the wind-chill factor, or at least I don't think it does.
I went outside for approximately 10 minutes to clean my car off and almost froze, I had dressed to go out in a long faux fur coat and hat. I wore mittens and my UGGS and the only part of me that wasn't cold were my feet. I thought my fingertips were going to fall off....now it is suppose to warm up beginning on Wednesday and then on Friday they are calling for plus 1 and rain. Hard to believe the weather will turn around that fast but oh I am so hoping it will. In Edmonton they found a man on his front lawn frozen to death.....so close yet so far away. We still are in the wind-chill warning area and are being told to stay inside.
This is a picture of Highway 2, on December 4th the day of the blizzard. This is the highway I use to go into the city. I don't plan on going into the city until the weekend and I am so looking forward to it as I am getting a bit of cabin fever.
It is still suppose to be cold tomorrow but I am going to teach our course as it is held here in Morinville. I was speaking with Danielle earlier and she is not sure any of our patients will be there as some of them travel the back roads to Morinville and they are not in very good shape.
God Bless my friends and please stay warm.....many, many Hugs.....:-)
