Nasty Weather at Boston Marathon

Heavy rains, temperatures in the upper 30s, and gusts of wind up to 50 mph.

I’ve never qualified for Boston, and I’m glad I didn’t this year.  The website has up to the minute conditions and results, including this helpful tip on treating hypothermia:

If CPR is necessary, resuscitation should not be stopped until the person’s body temperature is at least 95°F/35°C (never give up your efforts). All temperatures indicated are rectal measures, which give a closer indication of core temperature. If the victim is cooperative, you may take temperature by other methods.

I’d be willing to cooperate fully.  Sounds like a nice day to sit on the couch under a quilt and watch a marathon.
