You may have heard the reports this week that the frigid conditions had even forced normally naked people to bundle up on the Northshore.  

We have found out, that's not completely accurate.

While the unusual cold has presented an interesting dilemma for nudists, they are still finding ways to get naked.

Tracia Kraemer owns Indian Hills Nudist Park in Slidell she says they are clearly not walking around in the nude when it gets this frigid.

"We're nudists, we're not stupid," she told me.

She noted, however, that even in an arctic air mass nudist can enjoy their lifestyle.

"The pool is heated to 91 degrees and the hot tub is 101," Kraemer noted.

So she says people are shedding everything and getting in the water.

"It's pretty comfortable actually."

She explained that they did add a warming "bubble" so people can get in and out of the hot tube with an area right there to undress and dress out of the weather.

There are plenty of indoor nudist activities as well.

"There's so much more going on than just standing outside in the cold naked."

Kraemer says bitter cold like this is about the only thing that forces them to actually get dressed all year.

"It's the only time.  We have nudists all the time."
