REGINA - Grey Cup week weather has taken a turn for the worse, and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are paying the price.

A few members of the Ticats reportedly suffered "minor frost bite" on Wednesday when they conducted their first practice at Mosaic Stadium, although "minor frost bite" is likely just "cold skin" to the average Saskatchewanian.

The Ticats practised at Mosaic again on Thursday, even though it was colder than it was on Wednesday. Friday is supposed to be the coldest day of the week, with the high expected to reach only -19 C, so the Tiger-Cats will travel 75 km down the road to Moose Jaw to practise in an indoor facility.

The good news for the Ticats and their sensitive skin is the forecast for Sunday's game is a relatively balmy -1 C, although the wind chill is expected to dip to around -15 by the fourth quarter.
