    Beautiful place with incredible weather.

    I’ve been trying to convince the wife to move there but after we had another kid last year it looks like we’re stuck here (unfortunately, both sets of grandparents live in Winnipeg and my parents moved here ten years ago because of my son) for a while yet.

    For fucks sake lady hands, have you even seen snow? I’d love to see you come up here when it’s -50, when it’s so fucking cold it’s like the wind is trying to rip off your face. You would weep like a newborn.

    Seriously though, if you ever come up here don’t come in the winter. I’ve lived in this weather my whole life and it sucks but I can go outside at -30 for a few minutes in shorts and a t shirt to run to the garage and grab my daughter from the truck.. For someone who’s not accustomed to it, even in winter gear, it’s absolutely brutal.

    Boiling water at -32



    I’ve worked outside multiple winters in temperatures down to -55.

    Come up here in January or February and see if I’m ducking you.

    I worked outside constructing a 6 storey office building during the winter in 2014. We had -30 to -60 weather from November till March. It was the worst winter I can remember.

    That’s really fucking cold. I did my winter survival training outside of Kiruna. “If you can touch your thumb to your pinky there’s no need for gloves” apparently.

    boiling water freezes faster than cold water.

    I've worked on top of an antenna when the wind chill was -70

    I’ve worked in the same weather surveying up north and in construction. I realize that boiling water freezes faster but that doesn’t Change the fact that it’s so cold out that exposed skin freezes in less than a minute.
    I’ve brought my son out at -30 to blow bubbles and watch them freeze in mid air.

    You weren’t complaining when I sent you a dick pic last night.

    Typical old fogey. “Do as I say, not as I do.”

    Did you have to have a 4 hour training session just to teach them how to download a work-related smart phone app?

    @conor mcgregor nut hugger@conor mcgregor nut hugger packs a cardigan when he goes to the grocery store for when he walks down the frozen food aisle.

    I'm telling you. The guy is a real piece of work.
