  1. Been there and done that a few times with the -40 thing … but not lately as my wife and I moved to more temperate climes on Vancouver island 18 months ago. But I do remember vividly being in Saskatchewan in January with a temperature with the windchill being -54 C, it was so cold that as the cars drove by their tires squeaked and that was the first time I had ever experienced that. Time to do some research now on why that is .. thanks for the brain exercises this morning. I’ll definitely be back!

  2. As a Canadian who lived many years in Québec City – which is much further north than Montreal or Toronto – I DID know that -40C and – 40F were the same. Can’t recall ever experiencing -40C except with the wind chill combined, but -35C is very common in January and February. Those are the days when you get dressed just to take the garbage out and when you get into your car, it’s like sitting on a cold, hard rock. You sleep like a baby, though 😊
