-11? Really?


I'm getting ready to fly to Montreal for business. High today -1....tonight -11 with snow. Really?

And it's going to be 75 at my house.

You can survive the temperature swings. I have for years.

Many people in Ontario and Quebec are still without hydro/furnaces since the pre Christmas ice storm knocked out power lines. They wouldn't care if you were a bit chilly for a minute or two going from your car to your cozy hotel room

Now we know why your beer is so good. Need something to do while stuck in doors.

nope..I've been out flooding the rink.

Just as you wouldn't go into the desert without a water bottle you don't go out without a hat and jacket.

And we don't lay around waiting for it to get warmer..snow mobiles, skiing. ice fishing. There are plenty of ways to enjoy whatever the season brings.

Does this mean you will not be joining the polar bear plunge. Scroll down for the video !!

Spent the first 30 years of my life there, I miss the snow, ice & wind chill. Wife thinks I'm nuts and refuses to go in Winter/Summer (too humid). And the food, holes in the wall places that you'd never look at twice but serve some of the best eats I'd ever had dining out (but maybe not for the 'health' conscious). Awesome cheeses, bagels, donairs, souvlaki, etc... Rue St Laurent was (and maybe still is) the dividing line between the English & French parts of the city. West towards rue Atwater is the English side and East of St Laurent is the French. Ste Catherine's has cleaned up up quite a bit since I'd last been, not so many XXX clubs anymore (youthful memories).

If you get the chance head up to Quebec City for the winter Carnival, http://carnaval.qc.ca/en/. Jan 31 to Feb 16. It's only 2 hrs north east of Mtl and it a lot of fun. Quebec City is probably the closest thing to a European style city in N America, beautiful architecture and cobbled streets in the walled section atop the Plaines d'Abraham and the old town below. Very pretty and compact, lots to explore and I know that oh'mike and any others who love fine woodwork would to wander around the lobby of the Chateau Frontenac just to have a look at the 120 year millwork, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_Frontenac.

I hope you enjoy your time and if you have any questions I'd be glad to answer them if I can.

Just got in....-22c on the car's dash.....

I'm glad I brought my scarf and gloves....

I'm up in Laval...so I won't be making it down to the city....though I have spent a lot of time on St Cathern St....the sidewalk cafe's in the summer are the best.

There is a Costco near the hotel and convenient to stop at....I'm going to go stock up on some munchies....and get me some poutine for dinner.

I think I've decided that after my Mega Millions winnings comes through, I'm moving to Hawaii. I'd like to never own a coat again.

Now all I have to do is buy a ticket.

-28 this morning and this guy is out in his pyjama's waiting for his equally crazy friends to arrive. I thought I build the back boards high enough this year, but I guess not
