I can stop belly-aching about the cold for a while because those frigid temperatures have now moved out of the Robson Valley to brutalize people in the middle of North America. (I see that Texas had a dump of snow.) Yesterday afternoon our temperatures got up to a balmy -4C ( 29F), but even though our thermometers had risen, it still felt fairly cold because there was a wind, and wind sure makes a huge difference in how temperatures feel.
I took these photos because they include the old Forestry Weather Station on Horseshoe Lake Road. On our walks we usually don’t pay much attention to the wind gauges on the weather station because we can feel the wind force and direction on our faces.
