Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late.

Yesterday low was -29.5 C (-21 F) by Wednesday is expected to be +17 C (62.6 F). May seem strange to some but this is very typical of winter temperature swings in Alberta. I distinctly remember one day when I was quite young that it was ~ -40 C (with the windchill) when I woke up and by mid afternoon the chinook had driven the air temperature to plus 10 C. I think the record was set in the forties with temperatures rising 40 degrees C in a couple of hours. There is a famous drawing made by one of the early pioneers out here of a horse dangling from the steeple of a church...the joke being someone tied their horse to a post and went into the church when he came out of the church after the chinook came through they found out it was the top of the church steeple and all the snow had been melted leaving the horse dangling.
Imagine how strange such normal weather would seem to someone from Syria.
