Our cold weather problems are small in comparison

Tanya and I both agree we have little to complain about.  Our electricity, gas and water still work, our roads are clear and we are warm.  There are millions of others tonight who are less fortunate.  It has not been reported, to my knowledge,  how many, if any,  have died in Ukraine.  We have a presidential election going on and such bad news may be self-censored for fear of angering one or both parties.

Icy weather claims more lives; 

Cold snap kills 40 in eastern Europe ; 

Europe cold weather kills dozens

Extreme weather kills Mongolia livestock

  1. How very sad for so many people — not just the ones who died, but the ones who didn't die, but fared not much better.
