After a week of sub-zero temperatures we woke up today with the thermometer at minus 22 degrees (that’s actual air temperature.) Predictions for this coming week have us bottoming out at around 30 degrees below zero. Being out in this cold weather has us thinking about our extremities and how to keep them from freezing. We become very conscious of what we wear on our feet. Whether we are observing or participating in hockey, thinking about taking out the trash, or just staying indoors, we need protection from conditions intent upon defeating circulation in our extremities, especially dah feet.
