With temps going below the 0 degree mark, there are a few safety reminders for those braving the frigid chill. Of course, be sure to bundle up. Wear gloves, a coat, and something to cover your ears, whether it be a stocking cap, ear muffs, or a scarf, to help avoid frostbite. Those with wood fireplaces in their homes, should remember to clean out their fireplaces. Pets are also affected by the cold. Small pets should wear a coat or sweater when going outdoors, and should not remain outside for extended periods of time. Lastly, ensure you have a full, or near full tank of gas in your vehicle to ensure the gas line does not freeze. Follow these tips, and your winter should remain as stress free as possible.
