You Know It’s Really Cold When…

You know it’s really cold when…

…you inhale and your nostrils stick together.
…you use two sets of keys so you don’t have to turn the car off.
…you can’t wait to get into an ice arena to warm up.
…you see the morning temp is zero and you’re happy because it’s going to be a nice day.
…you move to Alaska because it’s warmer.

Or, more to the point, “You know it’s really cold when…the Red Cross opens their emergency warming center.”

We’ll be in operation tonight at the Portland Foursquare Church, 1303 SE Ankeny, saving lives in the chilliest of weather. And while you might not be stuck outside overnight, it never hurts to remind yourself of these cold weather tips.
