Living in a deep freeze
We have had a blast of cold, arctic air over the prairies that has been here all week. It has been -40C or close to it for the past 7-8 days. It's at the point it's almost ridiculous. This type of cold is dangerous, so we have all been huddled inside our houses trying to stay warm. I go through more fuel in the truck this time of year, as we need to warm it up a good 20-30 minutes before leaving. With temperatures this cold, there is always that fun feeling of driving on square tires, since the bottoms of the tires freeze and don't warm up enough to unflatten until I'm almost at work. Yes, I'm bitter (no pun intended). According to the weather network, we are suppose to warm up to -1C by the beginning of next week. Holy hannah that's a difference of almost 40 degrees. No wonder everyone is sick. How are you suppose to adjust to that type of drastic weather change?
