I was editing some photos for the site today and decided to do a article about bugging out in winter and how winter time can literally become a frozen nightmare.
Below is a great article relating to cold weather emergency’s from Tess Pennington and Jack Valentine on how to fight Hypothermia and considering the recent weather event’s they have some really good information worth sharing!

Many of us have first-hand accounts of what being without heat for a period of time feels like. Although I live in Texas where the cold weather is nothing compared to what some of you go through, there have been a handful of times where I have woken up to the after effects of a winter storm knocking out my electricity and immediately felt worry and panic about keeping my babies warm enough.
If you live in an area that experiences extremely cold temperatures, aside from a fireplace and an ample supply of firewood, the number one thing to invest in for your survival retreat is a gas oven/stove as opposed to an electric one. When the power goes out, the gas usually stays on, and there is no better way to heat a powerless house (or kitchen at the very least) than with 4 gas burners on high. Wood or pot-belly stoves work well too, and when you have one in the basement as backup to your normal electrical furnace, it sure does come in handy.
