Enjoy the weather while you can!

Because this was the temperature like in my City (Calgary, Canada) today! For people who don't know C well, -20 C = -4 F

Brrrr!!! I would curl up somewhere and not surface until it was at least 50 degrees out! I'm just really starting to enjoy my convertible now here in AZ. I got it right before the weather got hot, and really couldn't use it much. I got desperate one day and actually drove for a bit with the top down in 113 degree heat. Never again!! So your winter = my perfect weather here!

I remember my cold Alberta days very well up in Fort MacMurray I experienced as low as -46 C = -50.8 F I parked during the night(s) underground at the Nomad Inn and the engine heater was plugged in all night, during the daytime the car was just running all day long so it would take me back to the hotel at night Glad it was a rental and not my toy tugged away in a garage in Edmonton at that time

The nice thing about Alberta it's a dry cold.

You're just perpetuating the fact Canadians live in Igloos.

Exactly. If it was humid, it would be wayyyyy worse.

Thanks god they don't use salt in AB.
But I wish it was as easy as just saying "No Thanks"

Add in the wind and your face goes numb and frozen.
lol it will put some hair on your chest. Ever had 12 beers, play 2hrs of shinny hockey when its -25C outside, standard weekend behaviour. - Fellow Alberta citizen

I love driving my M3 in winter. Definitely you need a good set of winter tires though.

Gotta love getting stuck behind a "sandblasting" truck and then trying to pass. Or getting behind a row of the salt trucks as they shoot out rock salt in a wide dispersal on the 401. 4-5 trucks and you have no choice but to either slow way down and wait, or blast by in an open lane as you wince and get peppered with cross-fire.

i agree, getting stuck behind those trucks suck!
