Yikes! -26 on Friday. Glad the car is parked inside.
If your car is from Japan, then according to therollin, it should be fine. Use his guide to determine the needs for your car lol

@PowerStreamNews power restored in major Mac & woodbine! Thank You crews!

I assume it has been kept up because I don't see any more tweets after that so looks fine to me.

If you guys think that is cold for Friday, wait till you all see what Tuesday morning looks to be like according to the EURO model. Bru-tallll! I am warning you all for Tuesday morning, it could be a terrible chill behind the storm passing through on Monday and if we end up with that major snowstorm that the EURO model shows, then this terrible chill will only complicate matters even more.

Take a look at this map. Notice with the color legend that it will just be minus teens way up in the arctic, yet it goes down to the minus 20s right down here and in the US! just some crazy stuff here.

Indulge!
Ice cream is also protected by this weather. It can be enjoyed anywhere! bring your ice cream on a 3 hour walking tour of T-dot in this freezing cold and enjoy how it doesn't melt on you. ;)

Never knew "brazilman" was half russian.
So, have you ever been to Russia?
I have never been to Russia or Brazil. Actually though, my background is from Russian/Ukranian immigrant community living in Brazil which is why I am Brazilman :) I was living in Peru where my other family side is from.

Yes it does! Lol
Yeah!

Just the other day I was walking back from high park in the minus 8 degrees weather AND right into the wind! BUT I was actually feeling kinda hot even with my jacket off and just going in my t-shirt. So yes, that must be my russian background. And my Peruivian side explains why I am so obsessed with Reggae, Salsa music, Coconuts, Mangos and Papayas ;)

People must have thought I was crazy like that in t-shirt in the direction of the wind at minus 8.
