yellowknife shudderbugs

It's -43°C right now.
No wind.
Just a solid -43°C.

(The first place I lived when I moved here was in the building with the polar bear atop. Then we moved to the smaller apartments shown to the left of it. We have since moved into a house.)

I live in Finland, and the coldest weather I remember having here was -42 C a couple of years back. Still, I walked to school. That's what we Northern peoples are made of!

Thanks for you blog, it's a treat of beauty I enjoy on daily basis :)

Satu! Welcome! That's so cool! My husband is from Finland. Well, at least half of him is ... his father is Finnish. When Mark was 16 he visited many of his relatives there. I would LOVE to go someday. In many ways it is similar to here except ... where you live is prettier I think. I have not always lived in the North so you can imagine my shock to hear that if it was -30°C or warmer the school kids have to play outside at recess. Hardy stuff indeed!
I'm SO glad to hear from you and I'm glad you like it here. Keep warm. :)

Oh, my, oh, my, there is no beauty that matches cold and snow. I do remember -40 when I was a girl, but I haven't seen it for a while. Tom and I laugh when we hear of people retiring to warmer climes, and I say, 'Yellowknife!' What kind of heat do you have? Oil, coal, wood?? I just love your photos to pieces.

I'm surprised people's camera batteries work at that temperature. Mine starts to get a little unreliable.

But the photos are gorgeous, whilst one is wrapped in a cozy blanket in front of a computer.

Just don't open the window. (Shudder.)
