Minus 39 celsius at first light this AM. She's still a wee bit chilly, but should warm up long enough to snow this weekend!

Actually, that is an urban myth. It NEVER gets too cold to snow.

Yay!

Here in the Sunny South the current temp is 24 degrees, with a wind chill factor in the single digits today. The only good thing about it is that our refrigerator decided to stop cooling a couple of days ago, so we transferred all the food we could fit into the Scamp's fridge, then set the rest on the camper table. It's now the world's largest refrigerator. Tomorrow we'll bite the bullet and shop for a replacement fridge.

Paul and Roger are both correct.

At -39 C the likelyhood of snow is very low. There is a very good explanation here:

I'm not the only one with water causing problems during this cold snap 100,000 lost power in Toronto when a transformer blew. Link to story. Any of those with forced air furnaces would lose their heat. It took them 24 hours to restore power to some homes.

OK... enough is enough! with the wind chill factor, it hit minus 50C in Winnipeg this morning. for those of you down south, the celsius and fahrenheit scale are the same at minus 40. I so hoping we are rewarded with a nice summer to compensate. brrrrr
Are you the person wanting info on a Cool Cat w/Heat pump?
This unit puts out 12000 BTUs of AC/or Heat. Thermostat controlled and runs on 110.
It is a great addition to a unit that has LP heat as well. I suggest you have both.
A 2700 to 3000 watt Gen. will run a small unit such as a TAB or TADA with heat or air.
I read where someone said they were trying to heat and cool a big Class A with one and it didn't cool or heat enough. Not made to do BIG RIGS. It will run you out of a small unit it works so well. I do recommend one.
