It was cold, it was cold there. We weren't used to the cold but they had a lot of, I only saw snow once there but we saw cold weather. The fire pails at the end of each bed would freeze and your feet would have what they called hot feet and the boys would shove their feet through that and take the pain away, you know, it's a... Interviewer: Now hot feet was from beriberi? We have it, you know, most of us have it today.
