And you thought YOU missed Summer

It's -52c here in Winnipeg. That's -125F for you Yanks. I went jogging and it was -42! I plan on visiting my buddy in Sacramento in June, this is just so depressing ...

Re: And you thought YOU missed Summer

Exactly ... and today it looks like it's coming again ... -40C with wind ... I just ordered a new full Airtech front fairing, and I'm sanding my tank in my apartment ... it's a good thing my landlord is cool ... like the weather!

Re: And you thought YOU missed Summer

The worst I remember was -76C with the windchill(I think it was around -50C without the wind).
We still went out, and were too cheap for a coat check.

Re: And you thought YOU missed Summer

I am a paramedic in South Western Ontario ... Near London ... sitting here at a base scratching my head as to why people are out driving right now. (Snow Storm going on right now) I know I have to ...but there are so many people in the ditch and median on Hwy 402 ...

I just keep thinking that May ... I will take my bike to Deals Gap ... that is what is motivating me right now.

You mean -62F, not -125.
