    *laughter* I'd glady trade with anyone. The coldest I've seen here is -50F and snow is not a problem... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Good luck with the move. If you lose anything that I am growing, consider it replaced in advance!

    That's some kind of joke, isn't it? Someday you may regret having said it.

    Although I really have to recommend Liard Hot Springs to anyone driving the Alaska Highway in midwinter. It is literally in the middle of nowhere, 4 hours from the nearest town, with a single hotel across the road. It is barely developed, with just a boardwalk down to the spring. We were there in december and it was about -20 and snowing and the frosty trees were drooping over the pool.

    There is a sign at the entrance that says that there is a variety of CPs which grow there in the summer. The ecology is unique because of the heat from the springs.

    I never did see -50F, but we had temps in the -30C range for weeks at a time. The snow evaporates before it melts. Having spent most of my time on the wet coast, I have to say that it's much easier to stay warm at -30 than it is to stay dry in the rain.
