“This is only my second winter in 100 Mile since I left nine years ago. It must be last year I think, must have been the coldest. Victoria’s got really mild ones. ”

“I was working out in Fort McMurray and it was the coldest place on earth besides Siberia that day and that was like ten years ago. It was at least -45 C.”

Erich Kurath

100 Mile House

“The coldest I had was quite a few years ago up here We were like -40 C… I was a log truck driver and couldn’t get the truck going for two weeks. That was during Christmas time. I would say it would be close to 15 years ago.”

Dave Mingo

Lone Butte

“The first winter we were here we were about -43 C. That would have been the winter of 1994/95 and it was -40 C every night for about probably 10 days and pretty much -30 C for at least a month.”
