At one point here since midnight it was -55C with the windchill factored in. The power was out for three hours mid day. I went and started the van in case I had to drive to a neighbour's who had wood heat. It was a hard call to know at what point was it less risky to get in a vehicle and drive or stay in a increasingly colder house. I turned the burners on the gas stove on and that helped.
Energizer Bunny was a great heating pad as well.
We're over the worst of the cold weather. Perspective is a funny thing. It's only going to be -35C tonight.
