How to Stay Warm in Cold Weather Emergencies

To help keep you warm in cold weather emergencies where the power may be out and you don't have any of the commercial "hand warmers" or other heaters, don't forget the good old-fashioned hot water bottle.

These are usually flask-shaped rubber or heavy plastic bottles with a screw-in plug that seals in the water.

Heat the water over open flame, on your car's manifold, or by whatever heat source you have available during your emergency, then fill your bottle, screw in the plug, and keep it next to you to keep you warm for a while. Later, after the water cools, you can drink it if you need to.
