1 THE HEADLINE SAYS “WINTER SINKS TO A NEW LOW IN REGINA” It is very very very very very very very very cold. We’re talking minus-51 with the wind chill. School buses have been cancelled! Hundreds of Saskatonians lost their power! Who can guess how many T-shirts I’m wearing under my zip-up thing? (Note: Steve always wears T-shirts.) Anyway, it’s supposed to get up to minus-1 on Thursday.
2 WEATHERING WEATHER Thirty-thousand Newfoundlanders are in day five of a blackout. Montreal has ice trouble. Ontario roads are dangerous. Parts of the U.S. have been hit with the coldest temperatures in decades. The phrase “polar vortex” is in play. Brr.
3 DOES ALL THIS COLD WEATHER MEAN SCIENTISTS ARE WRONG ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? No.
4 IS THERE ANYTHING HAPPENING BESIDES COLD WEATHER? Yes.
5 DID KIM JONG-UN REALLY FEED HIS UNCLE TO DOGS? No.
6 CANADA’S JUNIOR HOCKEY TEAM HAZ NO MEDALS Let the hand-wringing begin.
GOT ANYTHING ELSE? Well, this snow shark is pretty neat.
