"This Dominos in San Antonio. People are working around the clock during this duel crisis of coronavirus and massive power outage. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only place open in their community that was open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need. Don’t let me ever, ever, ever hear you say these people don’t deserve a living wage. Swear to GOD don’t let me hear you say it!!"

OKAY listen up, this is a thread for all my cold friends out there who aren't used to severe cold. HOW TO LAYER, A GUIDE TO STAYING WARM, USING ONLY CLOTHING YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE, NO FANCY SILK UNDERWEAR OR WHATEVER.
1)YOUR FEET. Wear at least two pairs of socks: one tighter, thinner pair, and one looser, thicker pair. If you can do three, do a thinner pair, then midweight, then thick. Below: dress, midweight, and thick socks in the order you should put them on.
2) YOUR LEGS: wear whatever your preferred underwear is. Now put on a more fitted long sleeve shirt and more fitted tights, leggings, athletic pants, bike shorts, compression pants, whatever you've got.
Over these, put a narrow pant that is a little loose around the inner layer. Depending on how you typically wear them, jeans, sweatpants, yoga pants, or even dress/work slacks can work for this.
If you can, put a THIRD layer over these that are your biggest pants. Generally pajama pants, sweatpants, yoga pants are going to be the best for this layer. But whatever fits in whatever order is your best bet!
TOP: again, wear the underwear you are typically most comfortable in: bra, undershirt, whatever. Now add a fitted long sleeve shirt. Tee shirt, turtleneck, compression shirt, waffle weave, henley, whatever.
Pick another long sleeve shirt that is a little looser than this one to put on over it. A fitted sweater, sweatshirt, or looser tee shirt, buttondown, or henley is good for this stage.
Now (and since I know you're smart you probably guessed) get a bigger, looser shirt to put over this. A big sweater or sweatshirt is best!
HEAD: A lot of heat escapes through your head so KEEP IT COVERED! Keep a hat on at all times! The best kind of hat to wear is a thick, knitted cap that is not too tight, or a loose one over a tight one. If you have something lined, even better!
Hats with EAR FLAPS are awesome, as are earmuffs. If you don't have earmuffs, you can use big noise cancelling headphones in a pinch.
HANDS: Hands are super complicated because you want them free to do stuff but also it is very easy for your fingers to get too cold/frostbitten so you've gotta protect them! I recommend a fitted pair of gloves with a looser, thicker pair of gloves or mittens over them.
YES you can use gardening gloves or work gloves for one of these layers if that's all you've got. RUBBER gloves, on the other hand, are not good insulators.
If you really need your fingers free for using devices or work or whatever, get fingerless gloves or cut the fingers off a pair of gloves or mittens you don't care about, then wear these under your bigger mittens/gloves.
Protip: if you don't have a pair of gloves you can mangle to make fingerless gloves, cut holes in an old sock you've lost the mate to!
Now that you're covered head to toe, here are a few more tips:
-You can keep adding layers for as long as you have clothes! Just don't make them too tight: you want to trap air between the layers because it adds extra insulation.
-Wear a scarf or two! You can wrap your head in a scarf if you don't have a hat or need extra warmth.
-If you don't have s scarf or run out or scarves, a pair of sweatpants or flannel pajama pants will do in a pinch.
-It's okay to suspend a no shoes in the house rule during extreme cold. I am one of those people who thinks wearing shoes in the house is gross but they will keep your feet, which are susceptible to frostbite, warmer if you run out of options.
-Pockets are AWESOME and will actually keep your hands warmer, especially pockets close to your belly or butt! Your butt gives off more heat than you think!
-DON'T GET WET if you can help it. If you do, dry off and change out of wet garments.
-IF you don't have boots, thick socks pulled up over the bottom of your pants will keep cold air from getting to your legs. If it's wet out, plastic shopping bags inside your shoes can help.
-Be forgiving of yourself if it's too cold to change your clothes! Stay warm, even if it means dropping hygiene a little. If you need to change clothes, you can sit under a blanket until it warms up and then change under the blanket.
-You can also change out of many of your bottom layers inside your outer layers if your outer layers are loose enough and you are dextrous enough. Otherwise, do the blanket trick.
-Use chapstick on EVERYTHING. Your nose and fingers and toes and ears can get chapped too. If they feel chapped, put whatever balm/ointment/stick you have on them!
-Your eyes can get too cold! If you go out, put on sunglasses or safety goggles-- whatever you have to protect them!
-And finally, just remember that staying warm is more important than looking good. Go to the store in a blanket cape if you have to (a thing I've done). Wear the embarrassing sweater your great aunt gave you.
Take care, stay warm, and feel free to ask your friends from the North for specific advice if you need it! And hey, if you like this thread, please consider giving to Austin Echo or other area organizations helping homeless people right now.  https://www.austinecho.org/get-involved/donate/

southerners in the snow storm—
if your car is outside, go run it for a bit so the battery doesn’t die
scrape your car if there’s any snow on it
If you have a fireplace, learn how it works (gas or wood) and look up how to use it
leave your faucets dripping and open cabenits under the sink
if you can get supplies, get what you need for fire (wood, matches, fire starters), kitty litter to keep in your car and sprinkle around if you lose traction, warm clothes including gloves, socks, and thermal underwear, water bottles
if you must drive make sure you have warm clothes in the car
While driving keep a long follow distance, go slowly, don’t expect anyone else to be able to stop easily
Dont brake if you lose control of your vehicle, or during any turns
this isn’t a comprehensive list by any means
Northerners/People who live in cold/snowy places—
Realize that the South doesn’t have the same infrastructure to plow and salt roads and that most people are never taught how to deal with cold
Also most houses aren’t built for it and we have external water pipes and power lines
So shut up about how people can’t handle a little cold and actually give helpful advice if you must speak (:

Light pillars are a rare optical phenomenon in which ice crystals in the atmosphere reflect sources of light in a vertical formation. Long, illuminated beams can form above or below sources of artificial or natural light due to the air being extremely cold.

to stay warm, advice from a canadian who deals with -40C weather to the americans in the south
blankets and sheets, get them layers in your bed. wear a loose hoodie to bed and socks too. it helps. put a blanket under you too to keep your back warm
put a rug underneath your bed, it helps with insulating your bed from the cold
drink water, like hot weather n the summer, cold weather will dehydrate you and you will get colder. so to warm up, drink water
get enough sleep. srsly, it will help you deal with cold weather
take a lot of breaks if you are going outside. like stagger how long you are outside and hydrate 
don’t burn propane indoors, or keep your oven open
if you are going to make a fire, do it in a fireplace and make sure your flume is open
share body heat with your pet or family by getting under the covers together. it helps.
hot water bottles, electric heat pads and rice bags are great to warm up the bed. 
close your blinds and use curtains or sheets to cover the windows, it will help with insulating from the cold. especially at night. you can even get some styrofoam from a hardware store or window insulation. my sister’s apartment had terrible windows and she used blackout curtains to keep the heat in
baking! do some baking. it really heats up the house. like make a pound cake, something that takes 60 mins. srsly even in -40C i had to turn off the heat in my apartment because the oven heated the whole place and also, CAKE 
going outside requires: shirt and sweater/hoodie , sometimes an undershirt if you aren’t used to the cold. keep your core covered! a scarf! the heaviest coat, socks! pants! and water proof or insulated boots. double up on socks too! and gloves and a hat. in a pinch a kerchief can make a good headband and combine that with a hood it’s a makeshift hat
give your car time to warm up, the oil needs to be at the midpoint! so start the car and let it run before going somewhere
keep two car lengths between cars, it gives you enough time to break. the road is icy! and you probably don’t have winter tires, road salt or ploughing so give your car time to stop. like srsly, also go slow! put your hazards on too to let other cars see you and if you are going slow 
soup, make some soup
also hot chocolate is also great
stay warm and i love you guys
