Be Sensible

Official advice about how to dress in such extreme cold weather,  is listed from the National Weather Service:
• Make sure to wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you.
• The outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded.
• Make sure to wear a hat, because 40 percent of your body heat can be lost from your head.
• Also cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.
• Wear mittens, that are snug at the wrist, they are better than gloves.
•  Most of all, try to stay dry and out of the wind.
