Calgary has been experiencing a wild winter season, with warm chinook days contrasted by incredibly cold stretches. Just how cold has it been, you ask? So cold that not even the Penguins want to be outside.

You read that right. CBC news reports, "just how cold is it in Alberta these days? Colder than the South Pole — at least in Calgary, where the zoo locked even the penguins indoors to keep their tootsies toasty. The Calgary Zoo cancelled its much-loved 'Penguin Walk' — a special event that can attract large crowds — for a third straight day Wednesday."

New Year, New You, right? 

We always have high hopes that the new year will be a game changer. We're going to become more wealthy, get more in shape, cultivate more relationships, and just generally be better.
