Although we are still tracking some light snow and icy/snow covered roads, the biggest concern for the morning will be the frigid temperatures. We are starting off with temperatures a few degrees above/below zero. Due to a breezy wind this morning, our wind chill, or what it "feels" like is well below zero. Please bundle up with numerous layers as you head out this morning. You will likely need to keep all the layers on hand throughout the day as highs reach the teens and low 20s with lingering flurries possible.

The home remodeling industry is gearing up for the graying of America.
A survey of remodelers by the National Association of Home Builders shows that industry expects a big impact over the next five years as most older people have yet to prepare their homes for life's inevitable changes.
Because the majority of seniors want to "age-in-place," many will have to make special home modifications in order to live safely and independently.
To help, Certified Aging-in-Place have put out a checklist for what a home should contain.
Among them are levered door handles, wider hallways or stairs, and non-slip surfaces.
