They all disappear in a cold bolt, Wally touches the snow and mutters, "Cold".

Determined to never give in, Wally kicks into overdrive mode and reads 250 construction books, grabs materials, and runs to the bridge to build it and pull people off of it before anyone can get hurt. Wally knocks Blacksmith off onto a boat that leaves the city.
