This isn't Edmonton, but a reasonable facsimile thereof. It still very very cold here, and I gather that the rest of the country is experiencing much the same thing. Here is an interesting article from the CBC on what exactly 'windchill' is, when it's at home. Anyway, it's supposed to start warming up after tomorrow, but we shall see. In the meantime, we lost another soldier in Afghanistan yesterday, to a suicide bomber. It's saddening, but I don't feel the same anger about it as I would had the soldier died in Iraq. At least in the case of Afghanistan, we know why we're there, and we should be there. Scant comfort to Cpl. Murphy's family, I suspect.
