havoc (or cold snap)

It used to be the norm here in Alberta – -20-40°C – but lately we have become soft.  Up until about a week ago, we’ve been hovering between -2°C and +15°C, but that all changed.  Our home weather station said that we got down to -37°C yesterday morning at 8:00am.  Are people prepared?  You’d think it was the end of the world.  The newspaper says,

“Record cold in Western Canada triggers havoc across BC, Alberta”.

I got this Emergency Alert warning on my phone yesterday evening.

So I drove to the suite at 520 and turned off the electric space heater and the water heater.  Did that cause havoc?  No, not really.  It was an interruption, yes, but not havoc.

At present, it’s a nice, balmy -36°C.
