True. It was colder last week, and I didn't see any frozen people then. I saw homeless under the expressway under what looked like 50+ pounds of blankets (stacked about 4 feet high). The news reported that a few old people died of hypothermia, though, I don't think they were homeless, but they probably had their heat turned off / forgot what month it was / wanted to die.
Exactly, I've only chipped my elbow and hit my head pretty hard. Over the holidays, an old high school friend broke his back in 3 spots on just one step. It is absolutely insane how much momentum you can fall with when there is very little surface friction.
We just got hit by a couple of days of cold weather with the lowest temperature around 5°C (41°F) last night and 3°C (37°F) tonight. I know it is not the same as what you are experiencing, but I am currently in our house in Baja, right by the beach. There is a strong wind blowing in from the ocean and it seems like it comes straight through the walls of this 60 year old house with no insulation, no built-in heaters and single pane glass. It is not a whole lot of fun going to the bathroom in the middle of the night on days like this .
Fortunately it looks like it will be warming up again starting Wednesday.
