Last year in November we had a flood that wiped out the towns gas line. Then it got cold and snowed. We were without gas for over a week and the average temp was about 20.
One time when I was a kid, they were repairing a ruptured line and bulldozed our gas line in the process. All this taking place during an ice storm that downed power lines as well. We had no gas or electric for 2 days and it was -20 that time.
