Cold Weather Can Be Dangerous and Fun!

Unless you’ve been living in a bubble, you’re probably already aware that most of the continental U.S. will face temperatures 20 to 50 degrees below normal. That means windchill advisories in affect as far south as Texas!

When temperatures drop below zero degrees, frostbite can set in within minutes. Exposed skin can face damage after just 10 minutes of exposure when the wind chill drops below -40 degrees.

Dressing in layers is no joke! Thanks to the National Weather Service we have this useful info-graphic for how to dress for the cold.

And once you are properly dressed, cold weather can actually be quite fun!
Enjoy this fun experiment from Minnesota last winter:
