Ghost Town In Russian

Here is an interesting post from Russia's mining town of Prokopyevsk. Looking at the pictures, it seems that the city became extinct, but when it's -42 ° C it's not so easy to walk arround. If you breathe deeply, you will really feel the pain in the lungs, which will freeze as well as your nose. Imagine, if you open the window for 5 minutes, you won’t be able to close it because it will be covered with ice. You will be able start a car only if it is parked in a heated garage and even this doesn’t help every time. In many complex building they use coal. How do you like such living conditions?
A huge respect to a photographer who suffered a lot from the cold while doing this report, because after 15 minutes on the street, the camera freezes from inside and it stops working. Now look at photos of the city and its industrial facilities.

Friggin pansies. In Edmonton Alberta it'll occassionally hit -45 C and life goes on. Sure starting a car is difficult, and even more so is getting it to blow warm air, but life goes on.

Modern world can not stop because of cold, we have to adapt. I do would like to stay home all day but industry has to keep rolling. But if it would stay at extremely low temperatures for weeks, there would not be enough power available without shutting down some factories.
