Because it is sooo hot and humid right now, here’s a little trivia:

 

The coldest temperature ever recorded in Canadian history was on February 3, 1957, at Snag, Yukon when it was minus 63 Celsius (that’s minus 81.4 Fahrenheit!

    Are you on the east coast? It’s a perfect 66 degrees fahrenheit in Southern Alberta today!

      The coldest in your neck of the woods was on January 31, 1947: it was -58.9 C (-74 F) in Smith River, B.C.

      The hottest was 44.4 C (119.92 F) on July 16, 1941 in Lytton, B.C.!

      So, even B.C. Can be in the ring with the big guys! πŸ™‚

        They are still a bit up north. The coldest I’ve felt in Vancouver was minus 15. The water fountains were frozen. Brrr….. The lakes became hockey fields. Good for the kids.

    Yeah, it is hot here in Southern Ontario which always surprises my friends in India. They think Canada=Arctic.

      It’s funny, isn’t it? Apparently, airports see even today, people coming in with skis! I mean, you’d think with the Internet people would know … Still, it’s good to laugh everyday! πŸ™‚
