I live in "Midwest" Saskatchewan (Lloydminster) at least that's what they like to call it. I was born in Watrous, SK (sort of between Saskatoon and Regina) and lived there until I was 20 or so when I moved to Saskatoon for several years. My husband and I then farmed near Swift Current for a few years in the 80's when there was a severe drought. Bad timing! We have lived in Lloydminster for several years now.
Huge Roughrider fan here too! I think they play Montreal this afternoon.


Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I'm sure I will feel at home here very quickly!

Thank goodness it's not always that cold, lol. Today it's supposed to get to 30+ Celsius.
It's probably hard for people in warmer places to believe that your car can be "frozen". :)

I love the cold weather and although as I grow older my fondeness for snow and the ice it brings has dropped off some. When I was in the service I actually spent a year at McMurdo Station Antarctica. Now talk about cold weather it was pretty chilly some days.

I have been to all of the places you mentioned! And yes, I am sure going to be watching that game. I worked in a little convenience store in the late 70's in Regina and the Roughrider's office was right above us. We all got to become good friends with all the coaches and players as they came in often.

So what do you like to cook?

We then moved to the coast and my sister and I laughed our heads off one day when school was cancelled for 3 inches of snow!
She claimed this was in August.

The summer I started grad school, I had to scrape at least 2 inches of snow off my car, and that was June, in Wyoming!!!! It's been known to snow every month of the year here. I've seen it myself!

I was in a blizzard in Yellowstone one August! I think it was 1961 or 1962.
