Yep it's going to get cold. But it is winter and these things do happen.

This summer when the media runs stories about heat waves and blaming them on human use of fossil fuels don't forget, it's summer and these things do happen.

i have experienced -51 celcius, back in the winter of 2009 when i was living in Sweden for half a year..

people there were saying it was the coldest winter of the last 50 years..

 

it was no fun to be in the streets i can tell, eventhough the cold was "dry" and if you were well dressed you wouldnt have much to worry about..

but i remember one morning when i went for groceries in a store at a 15 minutes walking distance, and i had forget to take my gloves with me..

when i was going to the store it was no problem, i had my hands in my pockets.. but when returning home holding the bags.............

 

my hands completelly froze in 15 minutes.. it took me about 3 and half hours before i could open my fingers just a bit so i could leave the bags off my hands..

when hands started de-frosting, the pain was terrible and lasted 4-5 days before full recover back to normal condition..

 

i hope you will not have victims during the cold nights..

i hope for all those homeless people you have there to find a warm corner to spend their nights till the brutal cold is gone..

i experienced as well (often) -23/24 celcious in Greece..

but the cold in Greece is not dry.. its moist.. is the kind of cold that can pierce all the way through to your bones, no matter how well dressed you are..

you wouldnt survive 2-3 hours outside before drop frozen dead..

 

if i have to compare -51 dry cold in Sweden and -23 moist cold in Greece, Greece's cold is the one i would NEVER want to experience on my body again..

even friend from Siberia that i had and been working with in Greece, was telling me "man, i am from Siberia, but such cold i have never experienced before in my whole life.."

(siberia can reach -100 celcius, but they have dry climate as well same as Sweden.. be well dressed and you dont feel the cold..)

     Are you aware why it's going to be so cold? Apparently there's this thing called the polar vortex which has been split by warm air in the arctic forcing part of it south. Of course climate change has nothing to do with it and it's all a Chinese hoax.

I DEMAND that Trump build a wall to keep the cold out of here.... and he should make Santa pay for it!

Doesn't seem nearly as dire to me as US media is slobbering all over it.  I've played hockey outdoors in -20f, and gone cross country skiing in -40f/c.  I guess people forget what it was like before global warming.

Just a bit of useless knowledge...all temperatures at or below -40...then Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same...

People really need to watch our for their dogs and other animals as well...those low temps are really hard on dogs pads...

Actually, they converge and are the same at -40, then diverge again at colder temps.

You've had experience with extreme cold and I imagine you were dressed appropriately. Those who have not had your experience may not know how to dress appropriately or don't have any idea how quickly extreme cold can kill you. Thank goodness we in the U.S. have not abandoned completely fossil fuels for electricity production because solar and wind energy don't work well, or at all, in the kind of weather that's about to hit portions of the Northern Hemisphere but fossil fuel production is not immune either. Anyone with a backup source for heat could be in trouble if they experience a blackout.

 

Why Does the Power Go Out When It’s Cold?
January 23, 2014

The power system in Texas experienced all of these problems during the extreme cold weather earlier in January.  The severe cold at some power plants interfered with the proper operation of sensors, hydraulic lines, and other electromechanical support equipment, resulting in some plants shutting themselves down.
https://www.national...-when-its-cold/

 

Wind Energy in Cold Climates
The operation of wind turbines in a cold climate such as Canada’s involves additional challenges not present in warmer locations, such as:

  • Accumulation of ice on wind turbine blades resulting in reduced power output and increased rotor loads;
  • Cold weather shutdown to prevent equipment failure; and
  • Limited or reduced access for maintenance activities.

Wind farms don't work in the cold
January 8, 2011
December was the coldest month in more than a century [Piers Corbyn predicted it]  During some of the chilliest weather, they were working at less than one-hundredth of capacity, producing electricity for fewer than 30,000 homes. The National Grid was forced to compensate for the still, cold conditions by cranking up conventional coal and gas-fired power stations.
