It is cold in most parts of the U.S. Some areas of the country are more susceptible to severe cold weather than others. Also, some types of outdoor jobs require extra effort to stay warm. These areas include wilderness, parks and forest services, conservation and environmental industry, construction, petroleum and chemical industry, meatpacking, fishing and fish processing, and farming.
