You want cold? We got it.
You want wind chill? We got it.
We got cold today and we got cold tomorrow and we got clouds and we got wind gusts, I mean we got it all.
And right now if you enter our special promo code “frostyfingers” at checkout we guarantee an extra three days of extreme winter.
All kidding aside, layer up out there, and then make sure those layers have layers. I’m hoping that the prediction of warmer weather next week is true.
Extreme cold warning
Edmonton, St.Albert and Sherwood Park along with all other surrounding areas are under an extreme cold warning.

Keep emergency supplies in your vehicle such as extra blankets and jumper cables.
Don’t leave pets outside for prolonged periods of time.
