A reminder of some of the important tips we’ve brought you this week:
- Make sure you’re dressed warm, especially kids at the bus stop. Hypothermia can set in in as little as 20 minutes if exposed to the cold.
- Take steps to protect the pipes in your house from freezing. If they do freeze they could burst, which would create a very expensive mess.
- Be sure to let your car warm up for a minute or two after you start it to avoid doing major damage to your engine. Plus, make sure you battery is working well.
- Pets can not be out in this cold weather. They can also get frostbite and hypothermia. Remember, if it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for them too.
Snow is expected to continue through Friday morning, with slippery roads. Drivers are advised to allow some extra time to get to your destination today.
