Weather WTF  
So, checking the weather online and the description for Wednesday night begins "Bitterly cold. Colder. Mostly clear. Lows around 8 below. West winds 5 to 15 mph. Wind chill readings 14 below to 24 below zero."

In other words they're saying, "After you get utterly screwed by the snowstorm, it's going to suck worse and be crazy cold... No, think colder... Here, let me illustrate for you, since you're clearly not understanding the magnitude of the coldness." :p

Yeah, I know it could be way worse, but the format of the forecast amused me.
Current Mood: coldcold

Of course it could be worse - you could live here :)

There is a windshill warning for the western part of the province tonight. Up to -50C with the wind factored in. Winnipeg escapes the warning zone, but it's still horribly cold out there. At least things are supposed to warm up to mildly cold later in the week.

Oh, I know... It could even be worse here... There were a few days in high school where school was canceled because of -50 or lower wind chills. Brrrr....

The local media is very good at making the weather forecast sound dire and scary -- all the better to keep you watching their weather coverage.
