Cold weather presents another problem. Hypothermia. A person is in a hypothermia state if their temperature drops below 95 degrees. Shivering and mental confusion are signs of hypothermia.
If exposed to the cold for an extended length of time, the internal body mechanism is unable to replenish the heat that is being lost. Alcohol can further complicate the condition known as hypothermia because it makes a person feel warm, while increasing heat loss.
When going out in the cold remember layers of clothing, hats, gloves, and ear warmers. On your feet wear non skid soles and avoid plastic or leather soles.
