Everyone knows winter in Montana is a recurring theme. One week we have beautiful Spring weather, and the next it is 25 below. Here are a few tips to help prevent winter catastrophes in your home:
-Make sure to leave your heat set NO lower than 55 degrees, the warmer the better!
-If your faucets run along an exterior wall- keep them dripping with cold water, and leave open any surrounding cabinets.
-Make sure the weather stripping on your exterior doors is intact.
-Closing curtains and blinds can help to reduce cold air flow from windows.
Remember while driving, that these roads are not for the faint of heart!
-Have a few snacks, flashlights, and bottles of water stashed in your vehicle in case of emergency.
-Store an electric blanket that plugs into the power adapter of your car.
-Carry jumper cables.
-Check the air pressure in your tires and inspect your spare!
While you are "weathering the storms" we wish you and your loved ones health and happiness!
