It is well within the Arctic circle (aver. yearly temp. of −17 °C )...

Still even at my "usual" location (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) I don't know of anyone using hot water bottles... not only it would be very uncomfortable (and deadly) during wintertime but water pipes & al would also freeze.

Fortunately, it is a "dry" cold and if one is well dressed (no matter what some people say, nothing stops the cold as white goose down and sealskin mitts - crappy synthetic stuff feels like paper and the constant wind just gets through - ) the cold doesn't penetrate the clothing and it can be far more comfortable than at higher temps with humidity.

ITT: Rogue Nine calls D333 fat.
I still have a lot of catching up to do to survive at those temps like polar bears do
