Today's Fitbit numbers will probably not wow anyone, owing to the 2°C rain keeping our layer of slush from solidifying entirely.
Enter next week's forecast to put things into perspective:
A 30 percent chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near -6°C.
Partly cloudy, with a low around -18°C. Blustery.
Mostly sunny and cold, with a high near -16°C. Blustery.
Partly cloudy, with a low around -20°C.
Mostly sunny, with a high near -10°C. Breezy.
Oh, joy. Break out the Aran sweater and long johns...and wait for the warm-up on Thursday.
