#11 Canada provides most of the world with both the yellow and brown seeds for mustard. One of the worlds favorite condiments right after ketchup.

I've lived in Canada my whole life, and for me dealing with subzero temps in the winter is normal. I chuckle a little when I read about folks having vehicles that won't start when its still "spring" weather. We're so used to the weather we never think to ask whether a vehicle has a block heater or not, we just assume it does. Unfortunately, this is NOT always the case. Oops. Live and learn. Make that mistake once and forever remember to ask THAT question when buying a car!

I saw a thing from some science site (I'll have to search it again because I don't remember which site) that said Manitoba was colder than Mars yesterday. I told the hubby that it didn't really surprise me that Canada could be colder than Mars and that it probably wouldn't surprise most Canadians I know either.

It was frigid in Toronto yesterday. So much so that one of the news stations was reporting it was colder than the South Pole.

Sorry Alix, but your temperatures are another reason I choose to live in "tropical" MA where below zero temperatures earn around the clock news coverage.

I guess it's similar to my scoffing at my step daughter when she calls to complain about how cold it is in Florida when the temp is below 70F/21C

That ice truck is nifty. It reminded me that they used to build ice palaces in Montreal in the late 19th century. This site has quite a few pix of ice palaces: The amazing ice palaces of Montreal will make you wistful for winters : TreeHugger
