One Christmas there was an "emergency" and my schedule was cleared so I could spend the first two weeks of January in Calgary, Alberta. To save expenses I was to stay over the week-end.

The winter solstice is December 21st but nothing prepared me for the fact that Calgary is so far north the sun didn't rise until 9:30am and set just after 4pm. I walked to and from the office in darkness Monday then learned to see sunshine you must go out at lunch.

Nothing prepared me for the arctic cold (-40 that day). But that was my job.
