We haven't hade a huge amount of snow up here in central Saskatchewan yet, maybe 6-8" total, but the cold has set in! The other day it hit -42 c! It took 20 mins of driving before my tires warmed up enough to be round again! I'm convinced the battery in my 2011 Charger won't survive much longer, being in the trunk it never gets to thaw out. I used to work at the security desk at the Potash mine where I'm (at the moment) employed, and being an American owned company (Mosaic Potash), we get a lot of guys from the southern states in for tours. We had a few guys from Texas I think last year during a nasty cold snap that had never been this far north, or experienced such cold. They looked like they wouldn't survive the 100' walk from their parking spot to the door! They just couldn't wrap their heads around such extreme cold. All I said was "it's not bad if the wind stays down". By the time they left, the wind was howling. I felt so bad for those poor guys!
