Power out? Here are tips to stay warm


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.

“After living in Evansville, Indiana for 65 of my 67 years, it was more than a little stressful to consider moving 300 miles away, when even moving across town can be anxiety-provoking. Diane’s friendly & professional demeanor truly eased my tension as she helped me find and buy the house I did.  She also gave me the names of plumbers, heating & air people etc. to make my adjustment here even easier”.
