Off-grid homesteaders living in the Chilcotin’s remote northwest wilderness have reported record-breaking cold for the region.
Jennifer and Arön Toland, along with their neighbors, say this week’s nighttime temperatures have literally “bottomed out the Mercury,” with temps going far-beyond what their thermometers can handle.
“Last night was the coldest anyone can remember,” said Jennifer.
“Pipes froze, log cabins logs cracked, but miraculously the chickens survived in an unheated coop.”
But despite this week’s big freeze, the families said they wouldn’t change their lives at all living remotely and operating a wilderness lodge, Eliguk Lake Lodge Outfitters.
“We all communicate through solar-powered satellite, and check on each other,” explained Jennifer.
“We love the off-grid-life and it’s even part of our business. Arön was out packing down the runway on Eliguk Lake for bush planes last night for three hours in the dark just before we hit -40C,” she said.
Environment Canada Fraud
The closest weather station to Eliguk Lake is a forestry station at Moose Lake about 13.2 km NE.
Conveniently though, the station has been out of service during this week’s record-cold spell.
Matt MacDonald, an Environment Canada (EC) Warning Preparedness Meteorologist, said -50C and beyond is pretty unheard of for the region: “Usually those temperatures are confined to the Yukon and Northwest Territories. It is completely possible. There is quite a bit of variability in temperature from one spot to the other.”
As a result of the station being out of action, the all-but-certain record-smashing new low will never be officially logged. And this part of my frustration with government ‘climate’ agencies — imagine a station going off-line just days before a heatwave… it wound’t be allowed to happen.
Rural weather stations, like the one at Moose Lake, should be among the best maintained as they give a far more accurate temperature reading than urban stations which are skewed by the UHI-effect.
MacDonald did, however, have a few excuses lined-up and ready to fire: “Because it’s a forestry station, they make sure it is running through the spring, summer, and fall months; but a lot of them get capped or what we call ‘winterized’ in the winter months because they don’t need the data.”
In the midst of a supposed Climate Catastrophe: “we don’t need the data,” says Environment Canada.
More like: “we don’t need record-cold driving down our averages.”
The lower latitudes are refreezing in line with historically low solar activity:
And it’s only expected to get colder from here, as the sun sinks further into its next 400-year Grand Solar Minimum cycle:
Don’t be fooled by bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD, and of CROP LOSS — prepare accordingly — relocate if need be, and grow your own.
