We can all pat ourselves on the back, because we've made it through an absolutely horrible week of weather. The nightmare isn't quite over yet, as it'll be a few more days before things go back up near zero, but the worst is definitely behind us. And when I say worst, I mean worst.

Yesterday, Mars Weather Report tweeted a comparison graphic, showing us that our weather actually rivaled parts of Mars in the extremity of its temperature. Yes, yesterday and the day before, Canada was literally colder than Mars (except in BC). That's just not okay.
