Cold Enough For You?

Seeing temps at or below the freezing mark leave many people wishing they lived somewhere warmer. Though our area has a lot of very fun things to do in wintertime, extended periods of extremely cold weather can be dangerous if you aren't prepared.

The CDC has a great resource, "Extreme Cold: A Prevention Guide to Promote Your Personal Health & Safety" that covers the following topics and more:
  • Emergency Supply List
  • Preparing Your Home and Car for Winter
  • Monitoring Body Temperature
  • Understanding Wind Chill
  • Frostbite/Hypothermia
Enjoy the beauty of the snow and ice, but remember to plan ahead and be safe!
