In the Alberta Deep Freeze

From the Canadian Press,

NHL star Joe Thornton is walking through the freezer that is Alberta without a winter coat.

The San Jose Sharks centre, in Edmonton for an NHL game on Tuesday night, had on gloves and a toque but wore only a sports jacket when he and his teammates went to Rexall Place for the morning skate.

“He was telling everybody that he threw away his winter clothes when he moved to California,” said team media relations manager Tom Holy.

continued… and take note: factoring in wind chill it’s running about -44 (celsius) in Calgary and -51 in Edmonton. 

I really do not miss living in the prairies…  smile
