Burning Money

Today I read a story about a man who survived being lost in a blizzard for two days on Washington State's Mount Rainier by digging out a snow tunnel and burning dollar bills for warmth. I think it is especially amazing that he survived because of his age, which is 66 years old. It was a good thing he was a fast thinker and had emergency supplies with him or else he could have froze to death. Sometimes I watch survival shows that show you what to do if you ever get stranded or lost in bizarre places and think things like that would never happen but stories like this show that they can.
