-52C was the coldest I experienced when living in Edmonton. Pfff.
Yet some people here in Dysfunction by the Sea will persist in the claim that the End of Civilization as we know it looms whenever temps locally "plunge" to -3C because, well don't you know, its a "different kind of cold". Horse droplets! Sure its a crappy and somewhat miserable damp kind of cold but - really - are they comparing Saanich or View Royal to Winnipeg or Foam Lake SK in mid-winter? Seriously?!
My wee little 84 year old mother-in-law from Regina routinely endures frigid prairie temperatures at or below - 50 C and has done for a half century plus without complaint or fuss. Her attitude? "Its just weather...what's the big deal?" LOL.
