This week's them is "Cold" which is really appropriate because we're in the middle of a cold snap here in Ottawa!
It's seems like the most beautiful, sunny days around here are the coldest. You wake up to the gorgeous sun, get bundled up to go outside and think...what a great day, then it hits you! The wind chill!! The cold isn't so bad if you have on your winter gear but there's no escaping the dreaded wind chill. For this weeks picture, we were taking the dog out for a super quick walk and found some shelter under a big tree to escape the wind. It was -17C outside but with the wind chill it felt like -27C (about -17F). This past weekend, there was a frost bite warning which pretty much means that you better cover up any exposed skin when you're outside or it's going to freeze.
As i'm sitting here typing this, the current temperature is -33C with the windchill....brrrr! It sounds like it's going to warm up tomorrow thank goodness but unfortunately we're supposed to be getting ice rain and a huge dump of snow.
