Although it is going to warm up this weekend, January has been off to a cold start in Southwest Saskatchewan. The Rogers Hometown Hockey weekend was a chilly one, and last weekend had wind chills get down to the -40 range.
It's been a cold winter for our friends in Manitoba too, and it's winter 11 months of the year there. Our friends at Mix 96.7 in Steinbach made a fun video about living in a Manitoba winter. Corny Rempel (who's not only a great announcer, but a great Elvis impersonator, by the way), sang a cover of the Weeknd's big hit "Can't Feel My Face" to describe the weather in that province, and the video has gone viral.
If you have friends or family in Manitoba, you may have seen it on their social feeds, and I would imagine you would share their pain since, when you look at it, winter in Saskatchewan is not that much different.
