I just got home, walking out to my car in -12°F weather (I put several pieces of my Antarctica gear to good use today). The Jeep was none too happy about starting up, made sounds I've never heard before. And the roads are like skating rinks since the salt can't melt. Pretty ugly.

Sadly, due to fear of pipes freezing, the buildings are sweltering hot (that's according to the students, not just me and my penchant for chilly temps).

I'd complain more, but I'm watching the news reports of the plane crash, and the hell in Gaza. Doesn't seem so cold after all...

how did people survive winters up here before central heat?

They cut open a bear and crawled inside till April. That's my theory.
