Week of Polar Vortex

19 comments
This week we experienced the brutal bone-chilling cold, called the Polar Vortex which affected cities from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Toronto, Montreal to all the way to the Atlantic Provinces. The same was also felt in the North East United States and even as far as Atlanta, Georgia where they had negative winter chilling temperatures too. I know it sounds like we were in some kind of Polar Express, just like the Movie. We might as well be because the forecast is that this Polar Vortex might stay for awhile. 
 This Polar Vortex trekked down all the way from the Arctic North Pole to meet the warmer Jet stream from the South affecting the North East USA to Canada. It was truly brutally cold for the past few days with the temperature here in Toronto at -24C with a wind chill of -40C. We were warned in the News that skin exposed for more than 10 minutes outside this chilling temperature will result in frost bite. Everywhere was brutally cold and white with snow.

 
 These birds were hanging out in our tree. 
Of course, Mr. Squirrel here just loves to play in the snow.
 Canada Goose White Parka Winter Coat,  Blue Toque, Infinity Scarf, Haven Print Scarf and gloves all from Roots and Boots from Sorel.  The News on both TV and Radio announced  that this was not the time for fashion during the brutal Arctic weather. But of course, we can still be Arctic Fashionable. What is your Winter Style.? 
As for me, I have been keeping warm by staying indoors at Home to play some Board games with family, catch up on my reading of some Books and watch some movies. Perhaps play a game of Backgammon for now.

  2. Morning Pamela! Oh my, have watched and saw the images throught the Tv and web..I really cannot imagine how much cold is. I never experience winter in Toronto (only summer and autumn), I probably could die! Really, I suffer the freezing weather a lot (you think in Nov I wore 3 pair of socks in TO lol!!). The photos are breathtaking, the squirrel is really so sweet! You fashion finds are perfect for the temperatures. Stay warm and indoor dear, have a good weekend! xo

  3. Hi Pamela, Ive been watching this on the news and it looks excruciatingly cold! I don't think Id ever be able to survive those temperatures, especially coming from such a warm country. Wishing you all the best sweety, keep warm and indoors, hope it melts over soon. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on my last post. Happy Weekend!

  4. We, across the Atlantic were on the tail end of the Polar Vortex and it bought us incredible rainstorms. Fortunately the sun has now come out to play again.

  8. Sooooo glad that is over!! It was freezing in DC as well. This has been a really cold winter, and I'm already thinking spring. But I have to confess: I love snugly wintery sweaters and flannel pajamas :)
    Stay warm, my friend :)

  10. I'm so glad that we only had a couple of days of snow this year. Well, I hope you will make it through these cold days and don't find yourself without heating and hot water like I did for three days earlier this week.

  17. It all looks so pretty but but that's incredibly cold - no wonder you are staying cosy indoors. I hope the weather soon improves for you.
