People who were born and raised in extremely cold winter climates are a lot tougher than most of us. I was raised in Los Angeles; on a cold day I wore a long-sleeved cotton shirt over a T shirt .
Yes, I'm sure the woman doesn't "wander around" on a cold winter night, although in Siberia, winter has verrry long nights.
But if she lives alone, as she well might: (kids grown up and gone, husband dead), shopping for food and necessities is practically a daily activity. And she would walk to the local shops.
I greatly admire the fortitude of such people.
