It's 1°C in London today, and I hope Mum's asthma isn't acting up. In Seoul, where my husband is currently based, the temperature has dropped to -9°C. No wonder he was sneezing and coughing the last time we talked on Skype. And in Calgary, the temperature has dropped to a freezing -17°C, with light snowfall to boot.
A friend of mine arrived in Alberta a few weeks ago. Together with her husband and daughter, they decided to leave the Philippines and migrate to Calgary for good. For someone who has lived in a tropical country all her life and loves the sun, sand, and the sea, adjusting to the Canadian way of life during this extremely cold winter season must be tough for her. Good thing the house that they're staying in right now is equipped with Hot Water Tanks Calgary.
I'm pretty sure anyone living in the Northern Hemisphere would have water heaters installed in their homes. Without hot water tanks, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, or taking a bath can be pretty difficult. At times, even the simplest task of washing your hands seems impossible, if the water coming out of the faucet is as cold as ice.
I hope my friend and her family survive their first winter in Calgary without anyone getting sick or anything. And I hope she still gets to enjoy long warm baths, too.
