Be Prepared: Tips on surviving (and outlasting) severe winter weather…

Your vehicle: If your car battery is close to 3 years old, have it checked / replaced. Make certain your tires are properly inflated.

Home: If your pipes do freeze, do not thaw them with extreme heat. Instead, thaw the pipes slowly with warm air from your hair dryer.  http://goo.gl/zrnXwh
