Prepping For More Cold Weather

By  | 

The ice and cold weather brought about from Winter Storm 2007 can cause you problems besides slick roads. Plumbing and gardening problems are often forgotten when the temperature gets this low, but your pipes and plants can be transformed into instant icicles.

Experts recommend bringing plants inside. It saves money for gardeners next spring by keeping them alive and preserves their efforts from last summer.

Things you can do inside your home are run dripping water down the sink and make sure your home is insulated properly. To save energy and money, make sure the thermostat is set below 70 degrees once your house is warm.

With energy costs unaffordable to some, the Texoma Council of Governments has a program to help those who can't afford their utility bills stay warm this season.
