As I type this, it is 5 degrees (Fahrenheit- I'm old, so sue me) in Moscow, Russia. On the other side of the wall I'm next to, it is -15. Fueled by a steady diet of beer and cheese, the Midwesterner is perfectly adapted to winter combat conditions. Thus, in preparing for deployment to Afghanistan (Kabul temperature, 34 degrees; positively balmy) I will continue working on the diet that has made me the optimal combat machine I am today- Sam Adams and string cheese. Of which I've already had several. Cheers!
