Bone-Chilling Cold

20/10/08


As if rising energy costs wasn't enough, the legendary Farmer's Almanac is predicting an extremely cold winter season this year. It's time to prepare!
 
Below average temperatures are predicted for more than ⅔ of the country. There will be few days with temperatures above normal, according to the almanac.
 
The prediction goes on further to say that the Great Lakes and Plains regions can expect heavy snow fall, the South can expect heavier than usual rain fall, and normal precipitations everywhere else in the country.
 
"Bone-chilling cold" are the words used by editor Peter Geiger for what we can expect this winter.
100 gram Thinsulate™ Insulation with recycled fibers by 3M is being integrated into the production of Ear Mitt® this year.
Thinsulate™ Insulation with recycled fibers is composed of unique microfibers that help keep you comfortably warm without the bulk of down. It contains 50% (±3%) recycled polyester fibers made from post-consumer waste. The recycled fibers come from things like soda and water bottles, helping to give new life to resources that might otherwise be wasted. Thinsulate™ Insulation with recycled fibers is a positive step toward a more sustainable environment that uses fewer resources and discards less waste.
Inch for inch, no other insulation keeps you warmer than Thinsulate™ Insulation.  In fact, when you compare equal thicknesses, Thinsulate™ Insulation provides twice the warmth of other high-loft insulating materials and nearly one-and-a-half times the warmth of down.
