  1. Is our government preparing for the great influx of aliens crossing the northern border in the next few years? Fiddlin

  2. Those low temperatures for southern Alberta look fightening.
    We have old friends from the UK farming near Minto , Manitoba. It must be EXTREMELY cold there too.
    My old friend Chris is farming pigs/hogs there. That cannot be much fun with these temperaturs in November.
    They left West Wales to farm in Manitoba , about 15 to 17 years ago.They used to farm near Cardigan, West Wales, UK at 52 degrees North.
    It is mild here on the West Wales coast, thanks to the Gulf Stream. I have just been out to check the temperature in my car. I own a tourist attraction called Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park, Gwbert, Cardigan, West Wales, UK. http://www.cardiganisland.com
    At 8.15 AM on Tuesday Nov 18th 2014, it is a pleasant 4 degrees Celsius [we used to call it centigrade]. It was around 12 degrees C two days ago. Mind you , it will warm up greatly by noon.
    Of course, if a High Pressure builds up over Sweden in December, the wind will swing around even MORE to the east and bring bitterly cold air from Siberia , right across UK and Europe. Then we will have heavy snow and minus temperatures.
    It could happen in December, with all that cold air north of the 45 degree latitude.
    Lets hope it warms up in the USA and Canada . The temperatures you have in southern Alberta are regarded as PHENOMENALLY cold here in Wales.
    If the Chinook wind blows in from the west , across the Rockies, temperatures will rise dramatically in Alberta. How often do you get Chinooks?
