winter living




Last night, we had another Yukon winter memory for the books. For about 45mins we were without power in much of the city and it was nearly -40 outside. Most people in our neighbourhood wouldn't have had any worries because they all heat their houses with wood stoves, but we heat with electricity and we were having to think about going out to our friend's cabin for the night (as they heat with a wood stove).
Luckily it didn't last too long (we knew it wouldn't), but it was exciting while it lasted. A candlelit dinner and battery run radio for company. It was kinda fun. Noah thought it was exciting and found all kinds of ways to entertain himself.

  1. Adventurous! I think it's lovely sometimes when the power goes out and we live in the light of candles.
    But only for a little while.... :)
