How Are You Staying Warm?

Via The Blaze:

At temperatures of 15 to 30 below, exposed skin can get frostbitten in minutes and hypothermia can quickly set in.“People need to protect themselves against the intense cold,” said Dr. Brian Mahoney, medical director of emergency services at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. “They have to wear a hat, they have to have face protection.”Mahoney said mittens are better than gloves, layers of dry clothing are best, and anyone who gets wet needs to get inside.“A person not properly dressed could die easily in those conditions.”

So what are you doing to stay warm? 

In Shreveport we aren't expecting the extreme frigid temperatures of the Midwest but 17 degrees is pretty cold to us!

Global warming?  Seriously?

78 today in San Diego. Staying warm is not much of a problem.

Eh, I was cleaning my mom's garage at -17. Closing was coming up, it had to be done.
