Extreme Cold Coming, Be Prepared

Posted on January 28, 2019 | Filed under Archive

With the possibility of the wind-chill being minus 15 to minus 40 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday, the National Weather Service recommends the following: Wear layers of loose-fitting and lightweight clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you. If you’re doing strenuous outdoor activities, avoid wearing cotton. Once wet, cotton takes a long time to dry and will sap your heat. Use synthetic fabrics that wick moisture from your skin and dry quickly. Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded. Wear a hat, because 40 percent of your body heat can be lost from your head. Cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold. Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves. Try to stay dry. Try not to be outside for more than 15 minutes at a time during times of extreme cold. If you are driving, your vehicle’s winter survival kit should include warm clothes, boots, blankets, flashlight with extra batteries, candy bars or cereal bars. Always carry a charged cell phone and tell others of your travel plans.
