Ohio Winter Safety Awareness Week – Sunday
As you are well aware, winter – and all of its weather challenges – is quickly approaching. Soon we’ll be dealing with bitter cold days and nights, sub-zero wind chills, icy and snow covered roads, and a whole mess of other winter hazards.
Ohio Winter Safety Awareness Week runs this week (Nov 12 – 18). It’s a week we set aside each year to review winter weather hazards, learn some new things about winter weather, and just going over some common sense ideas that will help us get through the season without any major hassles.
We are never one-hundred percent sure what Mother Nature will send our way so it’s just a good idea that we prepare and remain aware of the trials and tribulations of an east-central Ohio winter.
All this week we’ll be posting a daily winter weather message that will help you prepare for winter. A few minutes of your time each day will arm you with the best weapon we have to get through winter unscathed – knowledge.
Today (Sunday) we’re going to talk about cold temperatures and pass along a few tips to help you deal with the cold around the house….
And cold when you must be outdoors…
Children and older folks are particularly susceptible to the hazards of cold temperatures and wind chills. Be a good neighbor and check in on your neighbors especially when we have one of those really cold stretches of weather.
