It's cold up there in Churchill. Or so I thought. But the average temperatures there for November are between 3 degrees and 16 degrees F. That's no colder than it is here in Minneapolis, and they're almost 1,000 miles north! It undoubtedly has something to do with how Churchill is positioned on a peninsula formed by the Churchill river and the Hudson Bay.
Still, I'll need to dress warmly. I did an inventory of my winter clothes. Parka--check. I bought a new one last year. Heavy gloves--no, I lost the pair Julie bought me two years ago. Hat--check. It's the one that Julie bought me to replace the one she bought me that I put in the washer, ruining it. Scarf--check. It's one Kate gave me after I lost the one that Julie gave me and the one she gave me to replace the one I lost. Boots--check, maybe. I realized that normally I don't spend all day in my boots, and I would be trapped in these for long periods. So I put them on for a day trip last Saturday. Six hours later, my feet were dying. So, new boots will be needed. I felt bad because Julie gave me that pair for Christmas last year.
$250 later.... I'm ready for the tundra! Whoops, I just broke my camera.
