The weather here is terrible! Wind chills of minus 40! And it is cold across North America!

As you normally expect in January, North America is deep into winter weather. Our own local temperatures have dipped to lows around minus 30 with wind chills of minus 40 predicted! We are currently under an extreme cold warning across the province.

Much of the rest of North America is also looking at cold conditions. Here in Canada there is little escape, with nine provinces under watches or warnings.

This lousy weather has me seriously looking at winter getaway deals, some of which I might be able to afford thanks to the recent drop in gas prices. Main criteria for such a deal: “anywhere warm with no bedbugs.”
