Storyline

The weather has hit puberty at the 4077: it is somewhere between 13 & 16 degrees outside. Mummy and Daddy send Chuckles a polar suit. Everyone else is freezing; Hawkeye's patient has such bad hypothermia, Hawkeye believes it might have saved his life, causing his injuries to clot. Chuckles gives Margaret his gloves and then plays indian-giver. Everyone is angry at Radar; he took all of the heaters from the tents and put them in Post Op, as per Colonel Potter's orders. Klinger loses his hearing when the sub-freezing weather causes explosions in the mine fields. The guys put a coffin to good use when they fill it with hot water to warm Hawkeye's patient. It might not be as much fun as watching Sonya Henie, but Col. Potter is never one to shirk his obligations. Written by LA-Lawyer

The Frigid North
8 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of many episodes that take place in the winter in Korea. Everyone is freezing and it is necessary to keep the casualties warm. One man in particular is suffering from intense hypothermia. The second plot is a huge down jacket that is sent to Charles by his family. In a moment of kindness, he gives Margaret his gloves and then decides he wants them back. Everyone envies it and, of course, Charles is a complete ass about it. A third plot is Klinger, who, while on guard duty, finds himself deaf when a series of land mines go off due to the cold. All these things tie together as Radar is forced to move all the heaters into the hospital.
