Cold-weather shelters have opened in the South Bay as chilly temperatures arrive in the area this week, Milpitas emergency officials said. Three shelters in San Jose, Sunnyvale and Gilroy have been established for residents from Milpitas and other cities to visit during the night to get away from the cold weather that is expected to last through the weekend. During business hours warming areas have been set up at various public facilities in area cities. Boccardo Regional Reception Center in San Jose has 50 beds, while the former Sunnyvale National Guard Armory has 125. There are 100 beds available at the Gilroy National Guard Armory. The San Jose center uses a lottery system to procure a bed, while the armories have a first-come, first-served system.

I love the Cold, however sometimes it's just "too cold" in which case I bust out one or two of my many Mylar Blankets. When you properly deploy them, you can get toasty rather quickly in the middle of the most undesirable weather situation at that moment. Water Proof & Wind Proof, I suggest you get some! I believe Amazon is selling a pack of 10 for about $6.85 right now. You can get them even cheaper thru an Emergency Preparedness Supplier if you buy in Bulk.
