How to dress warm
By Justin Isherwood
Weather forecasters like NOAA include advice of how to dress for a cold winter’s day. Never mind for Northerners alerting the hazard at a measly zero degrees seems a touch wimpy. Once zero wasn’t cold enough to be considered hazardous, and that with six volt batteries and a hand crank.
This warning demonstrates the remarkable concern of government to include advice to “wear a hat and gloves” on a day when the chill factor at noon is minus 35, that combined with a 20-knot wind installs a nice set of drifts exiting untended fields.
