Cold Weather coming

While we are fortunate to dodge terribly cold weather most of the time this weekend will not be one of them.COLD weather is a coming & Fast.After a little rain today we are about to get a taste of what our friends in the North deal with on a regular basis.Better HURRY & make sure your pipes are protected,Animals are squared away & have fresh anti-Freeze in the cars.It wouldn't hurt to have enough food & whatever other supplies you can't do without for a couple of days.If we happen to loose power It will get ugly fast.If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace get your wood together.Make sure you have some gas if you have a generator.this could not only save you some Big bucks from freeze damage but could also save a life.
Good Luck & prep on.......................

Thanks for the tips, Rhino.

I 'd like to add some precautions for people who may use space heaters.

From Harvard University Environmental Health & Safety


If you must use a space heater: The following steps and safety precautions must be observed:

The space heater selected must be tested by an independent testing laboratory such as Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL).

The preferred style of space heaters are fully enclosed by design and have no external surfaces that reach temperatures capable of igniting, such as an oil filled radiant heater.

Keep the space heater accessible – do not storage anything within three feet of the unit. The leading cause of space heater fires was combustibles too close to the heater.

The unit must have thermostatic controls and automatic shutoff features.

The space heater must be plugged directly into an outlet. Do not use a light-duty extension cord or a multi outlet strip/surge protector; it can start a fire with a high-wattage appliance. The unit must be grounded with a three-pronged plug.

Do not use an extension cord or strip plug.

Run the power cord so that no one steps on or trips over it.

Turn off the heater when you leave the room - unplug the heater when you leave for the day.
