Tricks for surviving the cold

* Stay inside, or at least out of the wind, and layers of clothing
* Open cabinet/cupboard doors under those sinks against exterior walls so warm air gets in and keeps pipes from freezing
* a heating pad can fix a frozen pipe given enough time
* turn on gas fireplaces while there is power to reduce load on electric heat, and so they are already on if power goes out
* did I mention layers of clothing? Seriously – several long-sleeved t-shirts is better than one “polar” fleece, and tights under jeans or long johns under jeans, and two pairs of socks, etc, etc
* plan outside time before going out – take a moment to imagine each step from the door to the car, or car to the office, etc – BEFORE stepping out
* Office Space on DVD never gets old – neither does Princess Bride
