Thank you so much both to Jer and pjv for those nice comments. I would say that our beautiful winter nature is a "double-edged sword" (which is an old Norwegian expression). That means that I have to use a lot of fire-wood to keep warm tonight.

That's becoming a common scene here in the northern half of North America where the temperatures have been hovering between -30 and -15 Deg. C since Christmas. Yesterday Ottawa was declared the "The Coldest National Capital in the World". It was also reported that the cold temperatures combined with the wind had made the ice on outdoor rinks in the Ottawa area too brittle for skating and Canada's other favorite pastime playing Hockey. Now that's cold!!!

Yes I agree it is cold. In inner parts of Norway it is the same. On the coast we get help from the Golf Steam.

Yea, it does. I have a lot of good memories from childhood speedskating on the fjord ice.

Kerrowdown you have always been so subtle in your comments that I seldom understand what you mean. So it is here also.

The mention of temperatures of between -30 and -15 Deg C, means we could almost be sunbathing in Scotland when we have temperatures here of +1.1 Deg C.

Here in Atlantic Canada we too get the effect of the Gulf Stream as well but this year it must have shifted a little farther to the east.

It also doesn't surprise me that Ottawa is so much colder. The National Parliament is not in session and with no Politicians in town there is no Political Hot Air to keep things warm.
