WonderBoi Another storm is on it's way: Here Comes Ion!!!! Look Out Midwest US and Ontario Canada!!

Alaska here. We had a cold snap not to long ago with ambient temps in the -15F range for a few weeks. After dealing with that and the associated wind chills, even 20F seems like a heatwave.
It's actually supposed to be really cold right now, instead it's in the mid 30's. Mother Nature is pulling a prank and switched weather on us!
Watch out for square tires when it gets really cold! Plug your car in when it gets below 20F!
What happens IF the roads start freezing, to the point trucks can't deliver their goods?

The freezing point of water is 0 degrees celcius (32 degress fahrenheit). Will it still freeze at 31 degrees fahrenheit?
No need to worry people, didn't you see the forecast? The temps will rebound back to average on Thursday. This is a short lived burst of arctic air. Here in VA the temps on friday will be in the 50s
I understand that this type of weather has occurred before, but what i'm getting at is this: Our generation has NEVER experienced anything "inconvenient"; as a whole; how would we deal with a "plague" or a "mini ice age"? Could you see yourself living a "Day After Tomorrow" type scenario? How about something like, "I am Legend"? Could they happen??? Absolutely!!! That's not the question, the question is: Could you handle it, IF.....? Are you prepared, IF.....???
