Have at least 2 or 3 options for providing yourself with heat, just to be safe

Just an update of our weather so far this month, for Faro YT(62.2285° N, 133.3532° W), Tuesday night minus 55 Celcius with wind chill factor making it minus 64 Celcius which is roughly minus 83 degrees F. Think about that and try and imagine it. Propane stops flowing around minus 40, vehicles won't start, have never tried a little gen set at those temps but I doubt it would run without additional heat source. This is an interesting discussion thanks for posting. There have been many valuable posts here. The best suggestion in my view is to find an off grid cabin and plan on gearing up to spend a winter. This is my 49th winter up here.

This is a short interesting read. People take this for granted.
