Re: [Weather] Canadian weather...

said by jfmezei:

Isn't -27 standard temperature for manitoba this time of year ?

Will feel a bit colder on the corner of portage&main in winterpeg, of course.

Portage is nice because it is so recognizable from an aircraft. Very distinct shape of its river.

If you are talking about Crescent lake, it used to be part of the Assiniboine river years ago prior to western colonization. But yes, the bend in the trans-Canada bypassing the town to the south along with the multi-rails line merging together at the town make it very unique.

And come on, -27 is warm for this place normally.

Always thought it was the river bending round town. At least until my buddy Mr Google showed me otherwise.

Heck, even when I biked through PLP in 1986, I didn't know it wasn't the river.
