So many lessons learned this year at the expense of lives. This is a very difficult year but one the wise will use to move towards a better level of preparedness and sustainability.
Each one of us must evaluate how to be better prepared for next winter after seeing the winter of '19. Cause it is very likely that the up and coming winters will be increasing more dangerous.
May God have mercy on us all!

Yes, sadly it always seems to take the loss of life and a sort of universally bad event for people to think about preparation... I have an indoor cabinet garden, thermo-electric generator and a rocket stove design draft furnace made out of 6 inch galvanised steel duct pipe. I am not allowed to have an outdoor garden in this trailer park, a wood stove and of course not allowed by law to produce my own electricity. I'm still prepared... I hope others will get ready this year...

I totally agree with you... there won't be much "law" enforcement when everyone is scrambling. With over 300 million people in the US and Canada being affected by these "arctic anomalies", I strongly doubt the actual numbers reported are accurate. Only one small city in B.C. reported 6 deaths from a previous cold snap overnight a couple years ago with regards to homeless people not having anywhere to go and nobody was used to this kind of cold or snowfall in the area. They only have a population of around 80,000 people there. If the same level of inexperience and lack of preparedness applies elsewhere, the 300,000,000 people in Canada and the US affected should report more along the lines of about 22,000 deaths so far... or are most people just lucky? I am not a big believer in "luck" but I do favour predictable probabilities....

It's wild watching the polar vortex go crazy compared to past years. This site is great to give you a visual picture of current wind patterns, temperatures, etc. I made a quick visual below, showing you the wind + temp trend going back to 2014 and now, as well as the spotless sunspot days to go with them. The bigger pictures are February 3/4th, the smaller are January 29/30th. Notice the deepening/widening spread of more intense cold, as well as the difference in the polar vortex split.

My brother just heard from a friend in Ontario that the air temperature is currently -51 degrees Celsius at his home. He has his gas fireplace cranked and the floors are still cold. No word on the wind chill factor but at that temperature, just skip it... We are only at -27 degrees Celsius here in Prince George, B.C. Furnace is blowing, gas fireplace is on... I can't imagine what my brother's friend's heating bill is going to be... Correct me if I am mistaken but is there not another "arctic anomaly" in two parts coming down in less than two weeks? :(

I just came across this image and wanted to share it with you for one reason... These people are out there in these temperatures getting the resources to fuel the machine. Once the temperatures drop enough, are these folks going to be able to keep producing without robotics? Humans can only take so much...

Anything above that 40th Parallel is going to be problematic. Especially in the oncoming years.
Take a look at all the below zero temps now and realize we are really just entering this thing. I can see many people selling and moving further south this year.
Surely there will be population movements. Which makes me ponder further on the building of that southern border wall or maybe I should say, containment wall!

Ozarks on Monday 60F and by Friday 28F. Wild swings here for just below that 40th Parallel.

To live in Brazil, that is what I suggest.

Well, to pack up and move stuff across country to another State is a major undertaking. Let alone the integration process with a people who mostly think and speak the same language! To move to another country as a total foreigner is way too risky.
There is a lot of work and research we performed before making our relocation. The average feet above sea level, availability of drinking water, availability of wild game, minimal code enforcement, lax gun laws, etc., to name a few of the many points to ponder.

Missouri Farm Bureau YT channel, 4 mins video on the floodings
Floods in the NW and, now, the SE parts of Missouri. These are lower areas near the Missouri river. I have spoken with a coworker who has or maybe had a home in the NW as well as his parents home being there. All were under about 4 to 5 feet of water. Now the waters are backing off but farther up river in the SE there is disaster happening.

The snow melts are just one more aspect that God is going to use to break down the wicked. The costs to replace homes, autos and equipment will be astronomical. Let alone the cleanup costs and the lost crops.

If we are just starting to dip deeper into the ice age now then we have to ask what it will be like winter 2019???

Get butts and elbows moving to prep now!
