Bundle up, baby, it's cold out there in Winnipeg

Stuff your mitts with hand warmers today, you're going to need it.
Winnipeg is only expected to get up to –20 C on Monday but the wind chill will make it feel more like –36. (Darren Bernhardt/CBC)

Stuff your mitts with hand warmers today, you're going to need it.

If you're walking or waiting for a bus, you might want to also stuff some in your boots. And car engines will be wheezing and straining to start, if they start at all.

Happy Monday.
