And for your furry friends - Bring Them Inside

Some furry friends can survive outdoors full time when the temperature's freezing. When it’s cold, the body balances by pulling the circulation away from the limit to help keep the core temperature warm. That will let the ear tips, paws and tail susceptible to frostbite. Or at the very least, provide a well-insulated outdoor house with dry bedding that’s out of the wind.

Wishing you a healthy, warm and safe winter to you and your family.
