After a very enjoyable late onset for winter it finally came on hard hitting lows of nearly -40.
-40 is cold. Very cold.
Waiting for the train is torture. It’s as if the engineers of Calgary’s train system forgot that it gets cold here and failed to design things accordingly. Doors seem to break, electrical connections short circuit and as a result trains that should be running every 5 minutes don’t come for 30. Those 30 minute delays while standing outside in -35 is pretty cruel.
At least the snow stays light, crisp and dry though. A very warm coat, scarf, hat and mitts will do their job.
