Not quite true. I grew up in Lead (SD). Many's the day I walked the mile an a half to school at temperatures around forty below Zero. (I remember one two-week period where the highest temperature was twenty below.) We dressed for it... or didn't as the case may be -- my compromise to wearing a hat while in high school (didn't want to disturb that "Ducktail) was ear muffs. Many times I had to stop and warm my cheeks with my hands but nothing ever "fell" off. Now, we never had any winds but I can imagine how much worse it would have been if there had been. I can easily see body parts dropping off in a windy condition.
