For those unfamiliar with how to deal with sub-freezing temperatures, heres a refresher:
• Leave a small trickle or drip running in your kitchen faucet to keep plumbing pipes from bursting. Also, disconnect water hoses from outside spigots.
• Keep thermostats set to daytime temperatures and open cabinet doors to help circulate warm air around pipes.
• Check antifreeze levels in vehicles to prevent freezing. Also, keep gasoline tanks near full and check wiper fluid levels.
• Bring all pets indoors.
• Donate blankets and coats, especially mens 2XL sizes, to homeless shelters in the area.
