Cold spell

Calgary is currently under a cold spell... and it is said to last for the whole week.

I had a hard time starting my car this morning at 5:30am on my way to work. It is actually my day off and I just signed up for overtime. My engine is screaming from the -30C to -50C temperature outside with a wind gust of more than 40km to 60km/hour! Brrrrrr...

Even the school bus and the public transit are having a hard time starting their buses. Delays are everywhere! This is the first time I had experience this since we came to Canada 7 years ago. [Whoa, has it been 7 years already?]

We only had about 3cm of snow yesterday, which is good, at least the roads are not slippery.

I decided to keep the kids at home today, so I have to leave work early just to come home for them before hubby goes to work. They should actually just suspend classes today! Oh well, it's a good thing it's my day off tomorrow too and I plan to keep warm inside the house.

I couldn't begin to imagine how cold it is there right now. I think it was a good decision for the kids to stay home. Take extra care.

BTW, here's a fun tag for Patricia.

Thanks Jo. Sorry I realized I overlooked Patricia's name so it didn't appear when I posted the meme but she was on my mind while I was doing it. Sorry about that. I revised it already. Looking forward to it.

Take care!

Just imagining your post parang giniginaw na ako, dito nga konti pa lang parang ayaw mo na kumilos.
