Power out? Here are tips to stay warm

    1

    With thousands of residents without power Tuesday, here are some tips on how to stay warm.

     

    • Make sure all windows and doors are closed tight so that no exterior air is getting inside.
    • Block any areas where a draft could enter with a towel or blanket.
    • Cover windows with blinds or curtain to insulate and reduce heat loss.
    • Consider moving to the basement because the insulating quality of the ground is warmer, especially when there are high winds outside.
    • Burn a fire in a wood stove or fireplace if it is available.
    • Run a hot bath.
    • Be sure and move everyone to one room to help conserve the heat.
