But it’s a dry cold

It’s at time like these, when Saskatchewan is frozen in the remorseless grip of a prairie deep-freeze, that Janet must ask herself, “what was I thinking?”.

    The title of this post sounds familiar. Where have I heard it?

    Janet should suck it up! She has lived in Saskatchewan how long? Just remind Janet that Nigel rode his bike in cold weather like this when he lived in Prince Albert.

    Mr. C.C.:
    – You may have heard it from that inveterate weather grumbler who blogs at randallfriesen.com and who sometimes photoblogs at drycold.com, or maybe you’ve seen the book “But It’s A Dry Cold: Weathering the Canadian Prairies” by Elaine Wheaton , or …
    - Janet’s brother Nigel is a wild man, so his behaviour in cold weather is irrelevant to this topic.

    I was looking at Lauralea’s blogroll and saw the link to DryCold.com and didn’t Randall also use “but its a dry cold” as a tagline on his blog site? Either way I knew I heard it somewhere.

    Nigel is great. But I just had to throw that in there.
