Folks, be careful out there.
I hope you have all followed the advice mentioned here before several times. Stock up on basic supplies such as ready to eat food, water, medical supplies, radio, flashlights and batteries. Have alternative means of heating, enough fuel and backup for those. Have a generator, but don’t forget a kerosene heater or a Mr. Heater as your backup’s backup.
Keep in mind the main causes of death that repeat themselves each winter:
*Heart attacks while shoveling snow: Take it VERY easy and take breaks often.
*Exposure: Either because of a mental illness, underestimating the weather conditions or simply ending up trapped in your vehicle in the middle of the storm.
*Car accidents: Avoid going out if possible, get your tire chains and be very careful of black ice.
*Slipping on ice when walking: Lots of injuries and broken hips because of this.
Take care people!
