Keep warm out there tonight ‪#‎SWFL‬.

• Do not use charcoal or gas grills inside. They produce deadly carbon monoxide.
• Be careful with space heaters. Keep them away from flammable items such as curtains and upholstery. Inspect the heater and electrical cord before use. Do not use extension cords or heaters with defective power cords.
• Make sure your smoke detector is working.
• Check on neighbors, friends and relatives. The elderly and children are especially vulnerable to cold temperatures.
• Bring pets inside.
• Cover outdoor plants and bring potted plants indoors.
• Protect wells and outdoor plumbing from freezing.
• Stay indoors or dress warmly, in layers. Wear a hat if you will be outside.

Luckily it has warmed up here in NW Wyoming. The current temperature is now 30. It was fun to hear the kids shrieking and laughing out on the playground when I was walking the dogs. Yesterday I had on the electric gloves and was still freezing. You just never know. I hope the rest of you get some relief soon.

I heard that yesterday the average temp for the US was 15. Oh my!!!!!  I am glad to hear that there are some warmer (20's?) temps heading your way. Our son in AZ is loving it - was in the 70's yesterday.

All of our schools are closed because of wind chills!!!! When will this break?

Wish sox with flip flops was my winter footwear.  Snowmobile boots and wool sox is more like it. 

Warning for you, Pam:   FRIDID TEMPS COMING YOUR WAY from west of you; I'm sending it with love.  LOL.  25 below zero this a.m. and the same tomorrow expected.  All schools in area closed today and tomorrow.  Wind chill temps as low as minus 50. 

We're expecting a heat wave this weekend---25 above 0.  Yippee!

We're good at keeping warm here in the high mountains of Utah. Our pets and plants live inside (except for the animals and plants we love that are indigenous to this climate). I have been known to wear my down coat indoors, not because it's so much colder outside, but because DH keeps the thermostat set at 65, which I find a bit chilly, unless I'm moving.

Best tip for keeping warm I can offer: Wrap up in a quilt!
