-31F for the overnight low and -17F for the daytime high up here in Manitoba. Currently the wind chill is -35F
Canada Post suspended mail service today in parts of Winnipeg (capital of Manitoba) because the cold weather prevented the Ford Transits the carriers use on their routes from starting event though they were plugged in overnight.
Forecast looks cold until the weekend not including the wind chill.
The forecast was wrong - it only got down to -15F!

When it gets that cold, I break out my Carhartt jacket. The temps aren't so bad, it's the wind that's tough to take. Luckily I don't work outside unless I have to blow snow.
It usually doesn't get that cold but we get a few weeks of below zero lows and single digit highs throughout the winter. We also get some wild temperature swings. For example, the high on January 19th was 37 and the low hit -15 on January 21st.
