Charlotte, NC

48° F at 7:00 a.m. The reason I have been posting the temperature for different cities is that I have a dislike and a kind of a fear of cold weather. Normally I shut my truck off when I stop for the night, but if it gets below 10° F then I must keep the engine running. This causes the truck to vibrate somewhat an its a little harder to get to sleep. Also I just don’t like having to bundle up in the winter.

Put one person in light clothes in a room at 32° F and another in a room at 100° F and give them both food and water. I believe the person in the cold room will die of hypothermia while the other person could survive much longer, if not indefinitely.

  1. When trying to predict what it would take to kill a person by heat exhaustion there are many variables to consider: the person’s health and fitness level, his or her age, whether she is resting or exherting herself, etc. I could survive for days in such a room.
