Average temp for feb. was 3C colder (-8C) than the last coldest in 1979 of -5C.

I'm ready for some warm weather!!

Its -26C, -42C wind chill in Ottawa, but the weather will be well above freezing next week. I think I will start riding the kids to daycare again next week.

Yesterday in Calgary, it was +10C on the west side of town, -2C on the east side. With a gradient like that, no wonder it's so cold in Guelph

It almost hit 40F today with nothing but warmer temps in the forecast.

So, basically, it's summertime!

It is 9 F here this am, but will be in the mid 40's tomorrow. Spring is coming! I wish it would hurry the F up!

Its only -5 here right now, however we're getting 40km/h winds! Geez, I so wanted to get a descent ride in before heading to work this evening.. I still just may do so, 'cause I put a brand spanking new chain on my winter beater, not to mention replaced the faltered derailleur.

Also, looks like I'll be riding home from work in freezing rain tonight.
