It may look beautiful and sunny outside today, but it’s bitterly cold, with temperatures hovering in the single digits and a severe wind chill. For many people, that’s the type of extreme cold that we’re just not used to experiencing.

Two common reactions to extreme cold are hypothermia and frostbite.  Don’t get caught out in the cold – here are some tips from the Center for Disease Control on preventing these common reactions to extreme cold.

CDC has much information. It's good for everyone to take a look at their site.

Something we see often in my area. Since it usually isn't this cold, not for long anyway, People have a mindset of "I'm just driving to town and back and I'll be fine with my jacket" People here don't wear hats or gloves. I keep a winter bag in my car. Extra stocking hats, gloves and a old wool army blanket as well as other items.  Just in case your car breaks down. I usually have my own stuff, but what if you have someone who doesn't, or somehow they get wet or you loose your stuff. I have both a winter and summer bag. The vacuum bags are great and take little space and don't forget your BT snacks  ;D
