Baby it’s cold outside :: Y fait frette dehors

Throughout the province of Quebec, the temperature is hovering around -20°C and they are announcing -26°C for tomorrow and on Thursday…. brrrrrrr! Actually it’s really not that bad as it is a dry cold instead of a humid cold. So here is part of the Old Farm building next to John Abbott College on the MacDonald Campus. This building is home to the Canadian Aviation Heritage Center and is well worth the visit… all kinds of old planes have been brought back to life and which would be very cool to paint on one of these days. Its mandate is to restore aircraft that have marked the Canadian aviation history.

Y fait frette dehors! Avec des températures qui oscillent entre -20°C et -26°C pour demain, on marche vite de ce temps-ci. Voici le bâtiment Vieille Ferme sur le campus MacDonald juste à côté du Cégep John Abbott. Ce bâtiment abrite le Centre canadien du patrimoine aéronautique et le musée vaut le détour car il y a plein d’avions qui ont été restaurés qui seraient pas mal cool de peindre une de ces bonnes journées. Son mandat est de restorer les avions qui ont marqué l’histoire aéronautique canadienne.
