So, if you’re paying any attention at all to the weather here in the Midwest, you’ve likely heard that a Polar Vortex has settled over us. It’s Hoth cold out there folks, and we’re all bracing ourselves to see what unfolds. School closings and activity cancellations are pouring in. And there was a segment on tonight’s news to warn people of the dangers of frostbite and hypothermia.

The thing that alarmed me most?

I literally have every single one of those symptoms on a daily basis. Should I be concerned? Is there such a thing as chronic hypothermia? Or am I just getting old?

  1. Count me in, only I live in South Florida where every interior space is air-conditioned until icicles form on my nose. I use a space heater and battery operated handwarmers at my desk!

    I don’t know how you do it up North. You folks are made of some seriously tough stuff to deal with those winters!
