I've been out in -30 this winter. Yes it gets cold in Canada. I wondered and worried about the same thing when I went out x country skiing, but no problem. I do think it was because it was close to my body and I like to stay warm!!

haha...I do know someone who mountain climbs and has an ileo!!!

The temperature isn't the problem (like Ron said) it's the altitude...the ostomy pouch blows up:(

-40, yup. Usually the last week or so in January and the last week or so in February. When it gets that cold, you run to your car, leave it running if you are only running into a store for a few minutes, basically you don't linger outside. It is really cold, but if you layer and keep all skin covered (exposed skin is BAD) your ok for quick jaunts. Most of us (over a million people here in Edmonton alone) have remote starters for our cars, and throughout the day, you start it for 10-20 minutes REMOTELY. You can also get a program where you can text your car to start. The summer months make up for the -40....it's beautiful here.

My husband and I went to New Orleans (yay Saints!) for our honeymoon and had to buy mittens and a toque (it as in the 50's) while there. Insane. I thought the south was suppose to be warm!! LOL. Then we were in NOLA last September (we go alot...) and it was in the high 80's...crazy stuff.

I went skiing out in the mountains and had to empty. I tried to put some snow in it to clean it out and yeah it froze up on the inside and I had to work the ice chunks out. Not one of my smart moves. The wind was really cold and felt bitter. Still very fun to be out in the wilderness!!
