The precipitation is getting all the headlines, but the extreme cold predicted to follow is just as concerning.
Take a couple minutes today to make sure your house is ready for extended single-digit temperatures. Check your heating oil level, drain the exterior spigots, and bring in some firewood if you regularly burn fires. If you have drafty windows or doors, then consider buying insulating strips to temporarily plug the cracks.
Stay warm, and make sure your house stays warm too. Frozen pipes are bad news.
