As temperatures drop and snowstorms become more and more common, staying warm becomes a priority for Occupy protestors around the country. In the gallery below, we take a look at what they're doing to stave off the cold.

Occupy Albany protesters gather in Academy Park in Albany, N.Y., on Monday, Dec. 5. Albany officials decided to permit the encampment until Dec. 22, while setting conditions effective Tuesday for staying in the meantime that include limits of 30 tents, two heaters, one generator, three portable restrooms and no cooking or open flames, no food vending and no semi-permanent structures or signs.(MIKE GROLL/AP)
