We are in a deep freeze pair of days. Wind chills as low as -42C. Time to stay indoors. I do hope my car will start on Monday morning at 615am. I have to drive to dialysis.

I wonder how the local feral cats will make out. One neighbour leaves their garage door open, perhaps that will help. We park on our driveway. No garage.

This winter has had generally low temperatures here in central Ontario. Most winters we get cold snaps. But the thermometer goes back up to -1 or-3 Celsius, which is not harrowing. This winter we seem almost always to hold on just below -10C.

Trying to eat light and drink light probably makes the cold hit me harder. One more perk of kidney failure. There is a chance I may receive a kidney transplant later this year. So next year I can stay in bed and not start the frozen car so early.
