Winter Safety Tips

A blast of Arctic air is headed toward Colorado.  It will make its presence felt starting Tuesday night and will likely linger well into the weekend.  Hey its winter and that's what we expect, right?  Well, this will be a little different...  The past couple of winters really haven't given us much cold or snow.  One has to go back to January/February of 2011 as the last time we saw any REALLY cold weather.  In that time many people have moved in from other (warmer) locations and may be strangers to cold weather and what to do during cold weather.  While I am all about personal responsibility and common sense, some people may truly not know what to do during cold weather.  So, here is an excellent website that contains helpful tips on a variety of things that are related to winter weather:

Keep in mind, after Tuesday it will be several days before we make it back to 30 degrees or better for a high temperature.  If by chance we get more snow than expected, that may not happen until sometime next week.  Be prepared, be smart, and we'll all get through this blast of winter in good shape.
