I started a thread a long time ago regarding this. The grammar part.

The weather person from that City news should know that proper English is " windchills between -30 AND -40" or just "windchill of -30 to -40". And I would pick the former either way. It is the word between that turns the grammar wrong. I had someone with knowledge in this confirm in the thread that it is wrong. Yet so many people in Canada don't even realize.

People think that because the word to is used in some contexts like the latter, that it is correct in others like this. But they are wrong.

Massive storm brings dangerous winter to Canada, U.S.
A massive storm system is bringing dangerous winter conditions to Atlantic Canada and the U.S. East Coast. Provinces and states across eastern North America are dealing with heavy snow, hurricane-force winds and bitter cold, presenting dangerous challenges for those caught in the storm's path.

So, I got up this morning, left home and listening to the radio when they announced that temps were -20. Didn't felt like it and remembered, we haven't had this weather in such a long time. Such that I forgot that it is iced cap season!

Cheers to Everyone!!!

The extreme weather has caused travel chaos with thousands of flights cancelled, leaving many travellers stranded at airports.
While violent winter storms, known as "Nor'easters", are common to the northern East Coast, a storm of this magnitude is rare.
