|The continuing story is that Alberta is going through a sudden cold snap which makes even seasoned Albertans go cold – ice-cold!|
We just went from around –20 (-4F) to staggering –38C, (-36F) even –40C (-40F) in certain places. Wind chill brought it even further down to –45C.
(-49F) Now, folks this is bone-chilling cold. Even short stays outside can give you serious frostbite if parts of your skin are exposed.
Frost smoke is wavering through the city and the nights are frightening cold with a big round moon laughing to it all.
According to Bea Molly started limping along on 3 legs, finally laying down with the freezing 4th paw under her to warm it up. No weather to even let your dog outside!
How is camping in these temperatures?
It is an ADVENTURE! Our water line is now frozen, but we have 2 big water containers inside. Inside temps are staying around 20C (68F), and that is the max we get at these temps. Of course one has to watch the contents of the propane cylinders. Like last night Bea noticed the furnace didn’t work anymore. Tanks empty! But I have a two-bucket-wife. She got dressed (while I slept) and changed propane tanks on the trailer tongue. We were back in business!
Our vans are still starting even without being plugged in. Not too bad!
