Yes, it’s been cold

On reddit, someone observed that Monday was the 207th day with a high temperature under 20°C, table linked here. Although it’s clearly not so unusual, it’s the first such span since 1997.

CBC radio said this morning we’ve had well below average temperatures. I’ve felt chilly myself, which is unusual, but here are the last few days:
