Today will be mostly cloudy with a high near -4C(25F) with a windchill as low as -19C(-2F) caused by winds from the SW at 15 to 20 km/h which will be shifting to the NW in the afternoon.
Tonight will be overcast in the evening, then mostly cloudy with fog overnight. The overnight low will be -18C(0F) with winds from the North at 10 to 20 km/h.
------------------------------------------------- --
Abbey and me just took the short route downtown. Even though there was just a light wind it was pretty crisp out there. Today I'll bundle up in my old work clothes and take the longer route along the gopher trails and give her a run.
I've adjusted he heating in the basement and it's a comfortable 22C(72F) in my room now.

Hi, Mush! Well, this takes care of last!

Seventy-two sounds just fine. I'm trying to live with 68 this year, just to keep the bills down a bit. So far, the heat's only been needed to take the chill off in the morning - but the real cold will show up eventually.

I'm surprised by fog at those temperatures. I always associate fog with warmer weather. Time to edumacate myself!

Hi, Tony! We keep our house at 74F, but we're wimps, lol!

Have a good outing with Abbey!

Hi Tony!

Sounds like your outdoor weather is now quite brisk (windchill lows of - 2 degrees BRRRRR) for taking those afternoon walks with Abbey! You should definitely bundle up for that!

Hubby was complaining about our outdoor 32 degree weather earlier while deciding about what to do for our outdoor Christmas decorations this year. We've decided to wait till Sunday's 52 degree warm-up to hang a simple wreath on the outside of our front storm door. We don't have the oomph or money to string all the lights or hang much else these days. It's all about "keeping it simple" both indoors and out.

As far as our indoor thermostats are concerned, we've set our two-zoned ranch for 69 degrees in the bedroom areas and 70 for our open-concept living-room / dining room area. It's comfortable and economical enough as long as we swaddle ourselves in heavy flannel. We must be very budget conscience these days.

Hope you and yours remain warm and well up there and, as Alley posted earlier, you'll manage to stay out of mischief. I already know how hard it is to keep up with my own hubby these days. Never a dull moment! LOL!

Good morning Tony, I try to keep the house at 22C too. I find its best to keep it warm for my arthritis. Sunny and warming up a bit today after yesterday's cool 32F. There is a bit of a breeze this morning and tomorrow we start seeing 40s again. Maybe snow by the wknd. We just have to wait and see.

Stay warm, stay well and try to stay out of mischief...leave the latter for me....ROFLMBO. Have a great Prairie Day.
