I remember in Louisiana when it would get to single digits we had to let all the faucets in our house drip all night to keep the water from freezing in the pipes. And that was 60 degrees WARMER than 54 below zero. I can't even see how anything can survive that!
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
