This is what -34 wind chill looks like, looking east at sun set.
It sure has been a mild winter, but this week has seen it back to normals with most days in the -21 highs range. Sure was great out walking this morning, no wind, crunchy underfoot. The sea ice is as smooth as a baby’s bum with very little snow on it. Most of the rattles and open leads will freeze up after this. Good thing too as a number of ski doos have gone through.
