It's Not Northern Alberta, but Cold Enough

-17 C is a nice winter temperature for a coastal valley with a little wind attached to it.  That was the temperature in my neck of the woods this morning and tonight it is a little windier but warmed up to -11 C.  It's a good cold spell across the west though, certainly will be a check in Alberta and Saskatchewan for the spread of the Mountain Pine Beetle. The -40 C at Puntzi Mountain  (west of Williams Lake, BC) and the Edmonton temperatures in the mid -40's are not not what those beetles like. 

Burke Channel is a beauty tonight though, -6 C and sustained winds of 90 km/h with gusts to 107 km/h - nice.  Grizzly
