You can’t fool around with Winter time weather if you live in locales where it is below cold for a good portion of the year.
I have heard that in some cases it can happen in under half an minute if the abrupt drop in temperatures is severe enough.
You’ll start feeling confused plus weary, which is a recipe for disaster because you might be inclined to lay down plus sleep. In a situation like this, you could truly die in your sleep plus never wake up. All it takes is for your body temperature to drop below 95 degrees fahrenheit. I read once that some people die every year from simply falling on their basement floors, plus not from the fall itself. If you can’t get back up in enough time, the cold basement floor will chill your body from head to foot. Before you know it, you’re passed out plus headed to your grave in under an minute from sheer coldness alone. Spokane is exceptionally cold in the winter. Whether you live near the Spokane Falls on the Spokane River or as far south as Moran Prairie, you need a good heating plan plus some kind of supplemental heating plan on top of that. What if you lose power? What if you run out of fuel while I was in a blizzard? I use a wood stove to heat our apartment in Northwest Spokane along with our central gas furnace, however some have generators for power outages instead. As long as you have some means of getting heat if your primary heating plan fails, you should be fine. Spokane isn’t any colder than locales I’ve lived in the northern midwest, however it depends every year as weather conditions patterns shift.
