    It’s Cold outside, ready for the Snow VA, MD & DC? Here are some tips!

    We have all seen the weather forecast, that we may have a "historic" snow storm headed our way on Friday. Whether you're a snow lover or not, are you ready? Here are some tips to help keep you and your home protected from the cold and snow: Check all the seals around your home's doors and windows. Fill up any cracks with foam insulation Turn off your exterior faucets, disconnect your hose, and drain your exterior pipes if you haven't done so already Make sure your gutters are clean from any leftover Autumn leaves Stock up on some ice melt and pretreat your sidewalks and driveway Get that shovel out and keep it handy Save your power company's phone number in your cell phone in case you have to report an outage Make sure you have flashlights and batteries (also in case of an outage) If you must go outside, keep yourself warm with layers, a hat, scarf, and gloves Watch for signs of hypothermia Only use your fireplace if it is properly ventilated If you have a generator make sure to only keep it outside and use heavy-duty outdoor electrical cords Fill your car up with gas and ensure you have enough windshield wiper fluid and an ice scraper If your family is anything like our family, stock up on hot cocoa, comfort food and snacks..and don't forget to get a sled for the kids!
