Just the news today at a glance.
Sad and unnecessary. =(

I know I've joked around before, but
don't ever take chances in the cold or heat...
Especially with pets, children and older people!

Good luck!

Stories like this make my blood boil. Completely preventable with just a little common sense.

And if I were aliens, I wouldn't talk to us either.

Going on day 5 here in northern Ontario of -40 to -50c nights and days.
Today started off at -35c and currently its -41c and -49c with the windchill.
It’s expected to drop below -50c tonight.
I don’t know how many people have ever felt -50 weather. But it literally hurts.

When I was working in the Arctic we had a full day of -62c.
Walking from my bunkhouse to the smoke shack, I swore I could feel my eyeballs starting to freeze up.

The Americans are just killing me with their histrionics the last week.

It's a Super Duper Polar Tornado/Tsunami Vortex!!!

Up here in Canada it's called.......winter.

Yet here in MI, everything is closed! Schools, Government, Garbage pickup. Lame. Didn't do that in the 70's.

I don't understand adults freezing to death.

But I worry for kids and animals. People that leave animals out intentionally should be beaten.

Not all of us have lost our collective minds, just the ones who lost touch with the world outside their city limits.

It's a wonderful 34 up here in Anchorage, AK today.

Yeah, the deaths are horrible. I've worked outside in -40 or lower temps and we were only allowed to work for 15 or 20 minutes between trips to the doghouse to warm up and that's with all the best gear money can buy. One young lady who would not listen to advice ended up with frostbite from the metal rimmed glasses she had on and lost the tops of her ears after only a few minutes.

You break down in a car in that and your screwed. I was in a car once where a group of us got stranded and a car load of kids stopped and then refused to give us a ride to their house we could see in the distance, because their parents would get mad. One of us jumped inside their car and made them take him to their house where called someone to save us. People get really dumb about things like that. Had a friend who's kid froze after his girlfriend threw him out of the car over an argument. He made it about 50 yards. The girl got 7 years in prison.

Ya, no fun, have spent my share of time working in the interior B.C., Sask, and Alberta, usually in winter.
This happened a few days ago, Gilles Duceppe's(Bloc Quebecois) mother was locked out of her care home after a fire alarm.

Well thats the point most arent used to it being this bitterly cold. Obviously you guys get it every winter, thus hockey as the national sport cause everybody's pond froze over. annd please when you throw out histrionics thats the media which in no way represent a normal cross section of the American thought process any more.

Up here in Canada it's called.......winter.

Nah, blowing things up out of all proportion is the American way. Look at the NFL, jet sqaudrins flying over , fireworks and the whole shebang.

Watch how over the top the media is about everything.

It's the American way to be grandiose.

Not a huge issue and trust me I dont hate the US or its citizens like some of the other non-US posters around here, but it's ok to take a little neighborly ribbing.

you mean Fahrenheit? either way, I understand it is super cold...seems like when it's 100' F it would be like 38c. so?? is -38c equivalent to -100F ?! That's insane! sounds like the "Day After Tomorrow" movie.

As a Canadian that stuff cracks me up. An inch of snow and I'm usually still wearing runners.

It would be no different for me if it rained for 20 days straight or was +40°C for 2 weeks straight where I live. I'd be whining so hard about that.
