Exposing ourselves to these cold temperatures for long periods of time can have dangerous affects.

Medical experts say there are precautions you can take to make sure you don't get bitten by the blistering cold temperatures.

Experts suggest wearing lots of light, loose layers, rather than wearing tight clothing.

They also say make sure to stay dry.

Moisture from perspiration, or melting snow can reduce the insulation value of clothing.

They also say if you live alone, arrange for someone to make a check-in call daily, to make sure you are okay.

And finally they say eat nutritious food, exercise regularly, and get proper rest.

Physical conditioning helps protect you against extreme temperatures and those who are fatigued are more vulnerable to the freezing temperatures.
