Erin Andrews knew it would be cold in Green Bay, Wisconsin on Sunday, so she planned accordingly for her stint as Fox’s sidelines reporter. It was so cold, in fact, that health officials in Wisconsin were actually warning people to stay inside. The Packers and the 49ers fans must have missed that warning, however, because they were there in full force, right along with Erin.

So how did the former Dancing With the Stars contestant and long time sports reporter get ready for the frigid Green Bay temps? She brought all sorts of battery operated warming accoutrements to the game with her. She had heated gloves, heated socks and even heated insoles to stick inside of her boots. She no doubt had extra batteries at the ready behind the scenes, too.

Erin Andrews shared her methods of preparation with her fans and followers via Twitter both days before the game and on Sunday as well.

It’s a good thing that Erin Andrews is one tough cookie, as well as good at planning ahead for adverse weather conditions. Of course that all goes with the job of reporting at high profile sporting events like Sunday’s game. Lucky for Erin, she doesn’t often encounter temps as low as 5 above, with a wind chill significantly lower than that.
