We planned to leave my sister's house west of Edmonton at 11:00 am on Dec 13 in order to make it to a birthday party in Calgary. Instead, our car wouldn't start.
By brother-in-law gave it a boost with his truck. Nothing.
We tried charging the battery. Nothing.
Canadian Tire tried charging it. Nothing.
So, I have a new battery now. The -36°C temperature was a little hard on my poor little old import vehicle.

It wasn't -36°C, it was closer to -46°C (and with windchill, it was as cold as -58°C) and it was the second coldest place on the planet at the time.
