Maybe Snowbirds have the right idea…

We just made it through a December where we saw some colder than average temperatures, with some northern parts of the state seeing record lows. As January, our typically coldest month, is just getting started we thought it might be a good idea to remind you of some of our previous cold weather blogs related to Frozen Water Lines as this may be an issue some of you may see this winter.

Lastly, I also wanted to remind you of a couple other previous blogs to help you stay warm and safe this winter:
·         Baby, it’s Cold out There!
·         Winter Safety Tips

Now remember, stay warm, be safe, and GO VIKINGS!
