    Ahem ........ now you'd be talking about my neck of the woods sci55 so be kind ! Actually Churchill is a little north of us ..... well actually about 1400 km (or 900 miles) north ! But none the less we Manitobans are mighty proud of our Bears !!

    Besides ...... it's a dry cold ..... and we can see Russia from our back yard

    Obie, the polar bears are beautiful, marvelous creatures that evolved to survive ice age-like conditions. However, my brother and nephew are a quite different species...I think. My nephew loves living in the lake effect snow belt near Oswego, NY. He is driven by the desire to own the biggest, baddest snow blower in the area. lol Every year he also scales Mt. Washington in the middle of the winter. That just is not natural!

    It is beautiful, don't know where the bears are. But that tundra buggy is supposed to follow them, so maybe they're about where we can't quite see 'em.

    I can't find a map that is showing me where the Artic Circle is in Canada. Half of Norway is north of the Artic Circle but there is not any polar bears there. Have to go to Spitzbergen and that is 78 degrees north. I can't figure out how far north the places in Canada is Oslo is 60 degrees north.
