I can't quite tell if you're rubbing it in or not - that's ALMOST balmy compared to what today's going to be like in Winnipeg:



Of course, only people in Northern lattitudes would attempt to make each other envious of weather in the -20 to -30C range.

At yesterdays Obama inauguration, everyone that planned on attending was told to bundle up.

The temp was supposed to be +8C

I don't even wear a heavy coat at that temperature!!! But in fairness, quite a few people at the inauguration could be from places like Western Mississippi (Yes, there are Democrats there) and would feel like they were dying at those temps.

I understand that everyone has different temperatures they are accustomed too.

-30 feels cold here at first, but when it stays for a week you adjust and it doesnt feel so bad.

That could also be the hypothermia setting in haha

but man, you feel the urge to wear shorts when it warms up to -20

Well, to be fair, I complained about +8°C being cold not too long ago...

When I landed in Stockholm in the beggining of September and had been in USA all summer.

Didn't know where else to ask this, so figured I would ask here (sorry if it has been covered already).
I was going to sign up for the Jets channel, however I was wondering if I sign up for Centre Ice for $50, will I still get all the Jets games as well? $20 extra for that much more hockey seems too good to be true.

Center Ice blacks out Jets games in our market so youd have to get Center ice + TSN Jets

A long time ago wheni was working offshore I had a long arguement with a older English guy who claimed that it was much "colder" in NE England because is was also damp and "that gets into your bones".
I finally ended the arguement by asking him what emergency supplies he kept in his car during the winter to keep him from freezing to death if he has car problems.

Then in the summer we can't go outside because it feels like +40 with the humidity

I can; I thrive in hot hot hot weather. It's why I eventually want to live in a warmer climate when I get the chance.

Hey all. I just got cable in my apartment in Grand Forks, North Dakota. So I was looking over my channel listing that I get, and I got "CBWT CBC Winnipeg Manitoba". I don't know anything about the channel at all and haven't really tried it out but I don't suppose there is any hockey on there ever, eh?

Just wanted to ask. Thanks guys!

It's CBC, so you get some crap Canadian programming and Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday.

either Buff or Pavs is getting traded to Edmonton by the looks of that jersey they have on the ice for the opening ceremonies

Thank you! I'll definitely check it out.

Good luck this season guys. My girlfriend is a big Jets fan. She's from Roseau, Minnesota, and her dad is acquaintances with Buff. She doesn't get to watch 'em much, but its the only team that she can name more than a handful of players, so it's something. We've got a big Wild flag and a big Jets poster facing each other in our living room. It's fun

Good luck this year.

Twenty minutes out in a wet cold unprepared: you get chilled for days.

Twenty minutes out in a dry cold unprepared: you die.

Card Room & Slots, attached to a Shark Club is my guess. We knew this was coming and it is good news for the Jets long-term future in my view.

Cool.
