Hypothermia can occur at warmer conditions than 40 degrees. Clothing and other weather elements such as moisture will play a huge role.

Some clothing that repels moisture would be a good idea if you plan on being outside at all during the winter

Got my wood stove and have begun construction on where it will sit. It heats up to 2K sqft.. We have an open floorplan so it should do the job nicely. Got a Hell of a deal on it too. It MSRP's for $1200. Seen it listed for $900. Got it on clearance for $460. Now the dang insulated chimney pipe is going to cost as much or more than the stove. But we'll be able to heat the house and help clear out a bunch of wood around the house.

What kind of stove? How about large cross cut saws and good 2 headed ax for when the gas is gone. In the teens here the last couple of days. Even my Harley is severing.

I've got a bow saw and a wood splitting maul. Hope to use the Stihl chainsaws as long as possible though.
