Happy Coldest Day of Winter! (May your MPG improve from here on...)

(One day late!)

Supposedly, January 19th is the statistically coldest day of the year... at least for Ottawa, Ontario. So it's looking up from here! Woohoo!

This comes from weather records between 1977 and 2012 taken at the airport:

Honestly, I enjoy winter activities... honestly! I skipped off and went snowboarding on Monday with my brother (Camp Fortune -- Gatineau, Quebec). It was sunny but definitely co-o-o-old. They were making snow, which made for some interesting scenes:

But it's still nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
