Stay safe and warm in the extreme cold. Dress in layers. Make sure the outer layer of your clothing is made of tightly woven, wind resistant material to reduce body-heat loss and risk of hypothermia, a serious condition that occurs when body temperature drops two to four degrees below the average 98.6. Don't ignore shivering. It is a sign your body is losing heat and it's time to go indoors. Cold weather also puts extra strain on the heart. Follow your doctor's advice about shoveling snow.
