[All] brrrrr

I wait for the bus M-F morning. The temp is gonna be below zero next week. Any suggestions how I can keep warm while standing on the sidewalk waiting for the bus?

Layer, layer, and again!

I am SOOOOO NOT looking forward to this cold snap. It is expected to hit -10 here Sunday and Monday night.
That means, I will have to leave my bathroom sink faucet running, or it will freeze. AND, I will have to switch to my back up hot air furnace because my current main heat from a "Monitor heater" won't be able to keep up.

Sunday Night: Clear, with a low around -13. Wind chill values as low as -28.
Monday: Mostly sunny and cold, with a high near 9. Wind chill values as low as -29.

How many Snuggies and ski masks will I need should I decide to leave the house?

Man Up and deal with it! You are a Native New Englander I thought.

Cold weather boots and ice traction things if needed. A ski pole for city street's MOUNDS.
Long Johns that have easy Relief Access.
White shirt and tie delivered to your office a'la Don Draper.

I have faith in you...

after the next three or four days, plumbers are going to be so busy with people not taking care of their basement plumbing and having pipes burst during this cold spell.

Hopefully I am not among that crew. (But I probably will be.)

That would be me answering Motel Not-So-Quite-Happy's alarms, JUST BECAUSE I'm the closest person that was stupid enough to get "The Call". Fortunately I made sure the pipes were blown clear and I get paid for this nonsense.

I reached -11 that night. The coldest I remember in a long time.
BUT!!!!!!!!!
I also still have water If it wasn't for the snow, my home water would be frozen solid. Under so called "normal" winters, I'd be frozen solid. But all this snow is acting as insulation.

DARPA just did a study on how to improve body temps in cold and heat. Believe it or not the chemical hand warming pads you buy almost anywhere raise your core temp while keeping your hand warm making you feel better and more comfortable in cold weather.
The same holds true for hot days using cold packs for your hands.

saw that on discovery channel awhile back. very interesting how this guy was shivering very badly. just minutes after they put his hands in warm water, he said he was relatively comfortable.
