Holy smokes, that's like as hot as the hottest summer days around here! Last winter was so pathetic really, it was warmish but never got any of the things I kinda liked about winter, the meter of snow in one night that you gotta shovel in the morning, the -40°c with wind chill, when it's so sunny and windy that the whipped up ice crystals in the air make a million optical effects with the sun... diachi knows what I'm talking about too I bet

Pete, even without snow about how cold would you say it gets where you are? Does it rain instead?

My ears were burning, figured someone was talking about me!

We've been below freezing all week here, had our first snow a couple weeks ago. The snow we had last night is probably here to stay, at least until May 2017... Hopefully we get a mild winter like the last one, saw -40 a couple times I think, Jan/Feb were -30 fairly frequently, December was "toasty" as in mostly around -15. That's "mild" for winter in Yellowknife. It doesn't go above freezing between mid-October/November and some time in May.

I'm amazed anything still functions when it goes below -40, it's just ridiculously cold. I try not to use my truck when it's that cold.

The ice crystals in the air make for some cool effects, sometimes all of the street lamps have big beams of light shooting straight up into the sky due to the ice crystals. Not to mention Sun dogs and Moon dogs. Usually sunny here in winter, so it's actually quite beautiful, especially with the almost perpetual sunset, even if you're freezing your ass off.

It's really quite beautiful in summer too.



Some from previous winters:

Can't compete with you folks near the arctic, but I have been in -45 F, and it hurts to breath when it's that cold out.

Yep, that's more than cold enough to cause lung damage without proper precautions. Kids usually stay home from school when it's that cold, especially if there's any amount of wind.

Is that a school board mandated thing, or just the parent's personal choice? Cause snow days and cold days or whatever were always refused by Edmonton Public School Boards, I'd me surprised if you guys up in Yellowknife would. We were however made to have indoor recesses if it was below a certain temp with windchill, at first it started with 20 below, then 25 below, then 30 below, guess they thought we were toughening up over time. I never actually considered lung damage to be a thing from the cold, but yeah I definitely agree -30 and below will burn/freeze your nose, and 40 below will burn your throat and lungs. I remember during lunch recesses in elementary the staff would bring out these 'magic carpets', basically plastic sheets to be used as toboggans down a hill that was in our field. We would form like six lines and would all take turns just sliding down and walking up for the whole recess, good times
We would make ramps at the bottom and they were fine with that, I'm surprised they were what with the van driving soccer moms who can't let their sheltered children have some fun for once. We did get 'pileups' banned, where everyone slides into each other at the bottom of the hill, when one softie broke his collarbone
Now that I think about it there were so many stories made during those winter recesses, man I miss those times

Not sure about the cold days so much in Yellowknife, but certainly in Fort Providence the parents will often keep the kids home if it's too cold - some still show up.

Oh yeah, definitely can get lung damage when it's that cold, adults are less vulnerable than kids of course. I remember my auntie who's a nurse rationing my outdoor time the second time I was in Canada (Came to Fort Providence, 300km from YK) when I was 10 and that was part of her reasoning.

Remember doing the sliding on the plastic sheet that time too, we were using the river bank in Ft. Providence as there aren't really many hills there (same in YK). Had a ramp half way down, that was lots of fun! There's been a post going around on Facebook about injuries from doing that as kids - my Canadian friends have all been sharing it. I haven't done it since I moved here, mostly because I'd look like a creep . Plenty of fun to be had drifting with the truck on the icy roads and ice roads over lakes.

We had pileups in Scotland too, although without the snow. Someone would end up on the ground and someone else would shout "pile on the pig!" and everyone would jump on top.

Aw yisss, love photos like those, great job. One of my neighbors did a similar thing but instead of a string, he attached two whisks at 12 and 6 o clock orientation on a cordless drill, stuffed them with steel wool and let er rip, haven't seen how they've turned out yet though. But I think I like the bigger diameter circles like the ones you guys made.

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
(John 3:16-21)

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from

For it is with your heart that you believe unto righteousness
and it is with your mouth that you confess

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life.
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,

but that the world through Him might be saved.
“He who believes in Him is not condemned;
but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
(John 3:16-21)
─────────────────────────────────☀
If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from
the dead, you will be saved.
For it is with your heart that you believe unto righteousness
and it is with your mouth that you confess
your faith and
are saved.
(Romans 10:9-10)
─────────────────────────────────☀
