Canadian Winter Weather

Thursday we had the first major blizzard and the temperatures have plunged ever since.
 Blowing snow and bad vision caused many accidents on the highways.

 Busy traffic in town was not deterred by the icy road conditions.
 The Saskatchewan River is now frozen over.
Today on Saturday, the storm has left us blue skies and a bitterly cold. -27 C (-16F) with windchill down to -40 C.
I took a quick walk around the campground.
One of our neigbours has wrapped his whole rig into foil. One big package.
Only the door is uncovered. I wonder if that helps against the cold or if it only is good for growing mold inside?

Oh, and the soft side trailer we showed earlier got a winter coat too. 
But I don't want to know what the temperature is inside.

Don't worry, there is hope. 
Towards the weekend we will be looking at mild temperatures. Maybe up to -2C (28F) by Saturday next weekend. You have to count your blessings.
