This view greeted me as I rose this morning. As I stood on the balcony to take the photo, down below an emergency vehicle with sirens screaming passed by. I don't know whether it was a fire truck, ambulance or police car as I couldn't see more than a few metres. For you non metricated, 7 degrees is about 45F. Away from the heart of the city, it would be much colder, possibly zero degrees at the appropriately named fringe suburb of Coldstream.
