Our Canadian winter is far warmer than normal

temperature Feb. 17, Nolalu, ON
Check out this photo taken about 3 p.m. today, Feb. 17, at our house in Nolalu, Ont. (near Thunder Bay).

Normal daytime high at this time of year would probably be approximately -10 C and is frequently -15 or colder.

Nightime lows are currently about -5 C where the normal would be about -20 to -30 C.

What is that in Fahrenheit? Just look at the thermometer above.

As unusually cold that it has been in the Southern U.S. is as unusually warm it has been in Northern Ontario and elsewhere in Canada -- just witness the lack of snow in Vancouver for the Winter Olympics. I heard a weather person today say it is the warmest February on record for British Columbia.

Could you send some of that warm weather down to Iowa? We have somewhere around 60 inches of snow and are ready for it to melt!
