Here is a rarity for January....




Winnipeg and Regina are the national hotspots.

What did Saskatoon do to be so much colder than Regina?

Ouch... I wonder what Davidson is like.

A few years ago, Thunder Bay went up to 9 degrees in January, and was the hottest place in Canada for a good 24 hours. It was weird.

And before you celebrate, Adrian, Toronto is -1 and Vancouver is 3. And for you, Newflyer, Saskatoon is not on that map! You're looking at Edmonton!

It isn't on that map. Neither is Victoria, or London, or Kitchener/Waterloo. They're too close to other cities. Thunder Bay is only one there because without us it would have a big gap in the middle!

Perhaps .. but there seems to be cities in close proximity in eastern Canada.

if ontario didnt have northwestern ontario, they wouldnt get all that money and then keep to themselves and then not share with the northwestern ontario communities like it so does right now. so yeah they need it.

It got up to +1 in Regina today (and no wind! I can't remember the last time there was no wind...) The high in Saskatoon was -8 and the high in Davidson was -6 (although that was around 7am...go figure.) For most of the day, I think it was a little colder in Davidson than it was in Saskatoon.

Look how cold it was in Alberta compared to everywhere else (well, except way up north).

Hey Adrian, look what happens when you go away... It's quite a zoo down there. The fire is on the west side of the street.


Two fires battled on Austin Street
Updated at 8:24 AM

By Meghan Hurley

Lois Greyeyes heard the loud crackling coming from outside her Point Douglas home and knew instantly something was wrong.

Greyeyes took a quick glance through her window and immediately saw the orange glow -- confirming her fears that a neighbouring home was on fire.
"I saw the fire and immediately picked up the phone," Greyeyes said this morning.

At 8 a.m., fire crews were continuing to wage war against a huge blaze that started in a home in the 2000 block of Austin Street and quickly spread to a home right beside it.

The initial call came in around 5:38 a.m.

Greyeyes lives directly across the street.
"I could see the light (from the fire) shone right through my window," she said. "There was no one else aware of it. There was no one outside."

Luckily, no one was hurt in the blaze, a fire official said.

The residents of the affected homes managed to escape, while firefighters rescued a dog.

Crews from no fewer than six fire trucks are still spraying water on the two homes on Austin between Lorne and Lisgar streets.

"The fire in the original home has spread through the roof," said Platoon Chief Garry Rasmussen. "With the flames through the roof, that's good for us because we can get at them."

But Greyeyes fears both homes are damaged beyond repair.

"I've been watching the troops go back and forth, and it looks like they just can't save them," she said. "...two houses, just gone like that."

Austin is shut down for several blocks from Euclid to the north.

Euclid Avenue had been closed from Main Street to Austin but has since reopened.

Lots of house fires here lately, too. Weird. A big house in the suburbs burnt down last week, it was barely a year old. I guess that's what they get for living in McSnootyville.

So uh, how's the weather up there?

-51°F in Tundra Bay with the windchill. (That's -46°C) But at least it's sunny!!!

I assume Winnipeg is seeing much of the same? We're living up to our stereotypes today.

The leaning green house, that's the one where the fire started. The '20s bungalow next door also looks damaged.

Merv sees his shadow
FEB 02 2008 11:40 AM

According to Manitoba Merv spring is still about six weeks away.

The groundhog came out Saturday morning to make his forecast.

Jacques Bourgeois of Oak Hammock Marsh says there was a break in the clouds and Merv saw his shadow.

If a groundhog sees his shadow it suggests six more weeks of winter. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

Ken Klassen (CJOB) reporting.
