This past week has been all about the weather.. a cold snap has hit the lower mainland and dang it’s cold!!
How cold is it?..
cold enough to freeze a pop can?
this was the temperature one morning this week..a balmy –6.8..
oh sure some would say ‘we have that beat’..my friend in Edmonton for example..-40 and then this past weekend she said it was –52 with the wind chill..
but what do we do when it gets cold?..well, we go where it’s even colder?
Yes, we ventured east to Keremeos..temperatures of –22 with the wind chill..how cold can that be?..most certainly not warm enough to be outside for any length of time..
A pre-Christmas visit to deliver our token gifts..sure they could have went on the Greyhound Bus but we figured what the heck..the weather gods were looking out for us.no snow in the forecast for the mountain pass..
So we got up before 5 A.M on Saturday morning and ventured east to a ‘deep freeze’..
We stopped at Tim Hortons in Hope for breakfast..
and of course, something warm to drink..
ice on Cedar Lake just passed the Hope Slide..
only –20..the temperature is slowing getting colder..
-23 and we had not even reached the Allison Pass Summit..
by the time we got to the summit it was a balmy –26..
before long we were back down the other side and heading into the town of Princeton..
and then an hour or so later we were crossing the Red Bridge..
we had a nice visit with Ron and Karen..spending most of the time inside where it was warm..we may be crazy but not crazy enough to spend time outside?
The gifts were delivered..mission accomplished..time to head home Sunday afternoon where it is a bit warmer?
..our weather forecast this week?
..maybe a bit warmer?..one will have to wait and see..
