Throwback Thursday: How to Prevent Freezing to Death

Throwback Thursday: Because we may be blizzardless to date, but it's still cold!

So last week, I was affected by the blizzard. The blizzard itself wasn’t too worrisome –

But it was accompanied by strong winds and freezing cold temperatures. And as we’ve discussed before, everything in my apartment is electric and I have no access to a 
fireplace. An uncomfortable thought soon occurred.

What do you do if you lose power when it’s snowing heavily and only 7 degrees outside?? I freaked out a tiny bit. Boyfriend wasn’t super helpful.

I googled hypothermia.

I asked Boyfriend.

I came up with my own fantasy solution

And I took the only realistic precautions I could.

Luckily, I didn’t lose power and everything turned out fine.

Think of all I'd save on the heating bill.


  1. Once upon a time, when people relied on fireplaces or coal heaters to warm their hovels, the temperature in their houses was about forty degrees on a typical winter day. Of course, they wore a lot more clothes than we do, including long underwear. They did more physical labor, too, if they were farmers. I'm glad it's 57 degrees here, just after midnight. Not bad at all.
