Long underwear? Check (though I had to go buy it today).
Snobby attitude about the West Coast? Check.
Having just returned from a brief jaunt to Victoria, I’m off to Banff tomorrow morning to Blogs ‘n’ Dogs. Travis reports that it’s -22° C in Banff right now. Speaking as a boy who’s spent his life on the temperate West Coast, those kind of numbers scare me. I just checked, and at about 1:00am local time, it’s a balmy -28° C. What madness.
The only other time I can remember being in really cold weather was in the Czech Republic. I don’t know how cold it was, but it was might chilly.
But, you know, I’ve heard that it’s a dry cold in Alberta. Which apparently makes all the difference. Yeah, right. That sounds like another thing that’s better in theory.
