Yes, this WEEK is typical winter
For what it's worth, daytime highs of -13C and overnight lows pushing -20 - and this is with no wind - are anything but typical, at least around here. Our average January daytime high is 0, and it's the only month of winter where the average is at freezing. The coldest we've ever been in recorded history is -25. They don't call us the banana belt for nothing.
So yes, we are freezing our asses off, and you will not hear me call anyone who complains about this abhorrent cold a whiny bitch.
