Leveling out

So for all of January we couldn’t get any snow, now the nature is doing its best to even out the winter average during February.

It’s -25 Celcius (-13 Fahrenheit) out there, with a wind of 3 meters (9 ft) per second to boost it to an effective temperature of -35 C (-31 F). Freezing damage is a real risk if you either don’t equip yourself properly or stay outside for too long. It’s actually going to get colder still, with predictions of -40 C (-40 F), including the wind factor.

With the air this cold, the streets are practically empty, you can’t trust the public transportation and yu avoid trying to start your 15-year old car. If we lived outside city limits, there’d be freezing plumbing to worry about.

I had a parallel to write about in my mind during the commute this morning, but I can’t think of it now. I guess the winter magic erased it from the synapses.
