Stay Inside When Needed

Just being outside for 15 minutes can lead to frostbite and even worse, hypothermia (lowering of the body’s temperature), in really cold weather. So when they say stay in, do it! FYI: It can also be cold inside, too, so make sure all windows are closed tight and that you have enough blankets and warm clothes to wear inside.
