Quoted from TheHueManatee:
-30 here with the wind chill. Supposed to warm up to -5 by the end of the weekend....break out the shorts!!
And the BBQ.
Quoted from Spinape:
why settlers chose here is beyond me
Hmmm.. Spinape has posted a history question?
Fort Edmonton, a Hudsons Bay Company fort, was established here in 1795. Settling the area to gain better access for Indian fur traders. The North Saskatchewan River, near to the present day Walterdale Bridge, could be crossed there by walking through it, for most of the year, and in that area the river banks are not as steep as the rest of the river valley.
P.S. Got to work today it was -37 C.
