It's been extremely cold here in Ottawa all week. Temperatures dipping down to -22C at night and daytime highs of around -16C (if you can call that a high!). That's -8F and -3F for my American friends.

On a side note, remember my post from Thursday ...

Well now it's time to vote for your favorite entry. Be sure to vote on the CanArtisan blog before December 22nd.
