Five things extreme cold does to the human body

Western Canada is thoroughly in the deep freeze, as Arctic air floods the region. Heavy snow blanketed a wide swath of the Prairies this week, with wind chills making it feel colder than -30 in some places. Meanwhile B.C., Arctic outflow in B.C. is set to bring uncommonly cold wind chills of -20 to many communities.

The human body is NOT designed to handle conditions like that, and when we talk about dangerous cold, we mean it. Here are five terrible things extreme cold does to a human being.

Be prepared when it hits. A must read for surviving when the cold comes knocking and there are videos that are as important to see. No laughing matter, this could be a matter of life or death, if you are not ready.

North Americans have the fall season now, but preparations for winter are still on their minds as furnaces come on during colder nights and adults have to assess warmth of Halloween costumes and determine if last years' coats still have wear and durability for winter this year.

Maybe a purchase of hand warming packets would be a good idea to have for coat pockets in those coats that go on long outdoor adventures. Or in vehicles that go into isolated areas for fishing or camping or hunting. Never know when that extra heat might be what determines if one gets through a really cold night into morning! Also power outages do happen and that means heating equipment and stoves won't work.

How are you planning to prepare for the winter cold season?
