A few days ago, we did a story about the harsh effect the cold was having on cars, and our Canadian colleague mentioned that in most places in Canada, there are places where you can plug in to your car to keep things from freezing while you shop or run errands.

Shortly after, we received an e-mail from Alaskan listener Katy Quinn in Fairbanks. "Alaska has particular expertise in arctic survival," she wrote. So we thought we'd ask her for some tips on facing this kind of cold on a daily basis. She joins Here & Now's Robin Young.
