ITS GETTING COLD OUTSIDE!
Get prepared - it’s getting cold outside! Like it or not, winter has finally arrived and could begin wreaking havoc on us soon? These frigid temperatures could lead to some unexpected frozen pipes that could have been avoided. We’ll have some expert tips helping to avoid some common frozen pipe problems coming up soon.
Most importantly though, most Americans, regardless of where they live, are likely to face some type of severe winter weather at some point in their lives. Winter storms can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a blizzard that lasts for several days. Many winter storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures with the threat of strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain.
If we find the need to prepare for a storm, please be aware of the winter weather's ability to knock out heat, power and communications services to your home or workplace. Some advanced preparation could pay off greatly as heavy snowfall and extreme cold can immobilize large areas for several days at a time.
The National Weather Service refers to winter storms as the “Deceptive Killers” because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. Instead, people die in traffic accidents on icy roads and of hypothermia from prolonged exposure to cold. It is important to be prepared for winter weather before it strikes.
We’ll offer some expert advise on how prepare for the cold on some of our upcoming blogs.
