  • Digging Out After the Ice Storm

    During and after this weekend's ice storm, we've seen trees come down, power go out and people be left in the cold and dark with a big mess to clean up. Here are some tips for dealing with the ramifications of such a storm:

     

    If you must venture outside, be alert to the possibility of electrical hazards:Ice Storm

    • Stay away from downed power lines and warn others to stay away. Be alert to the possibility that tree limbs or debris may hide an electrical hazard. Treat all power lines as live and dangerous. Treat everything near power lines as dangerous.

    It can be difficult to stay warm without power. If you live with young children or the elderly, consider temporarily staying somewhere with power. If you are at a home with power, there are ways to stay warm:

    • Stay inside and dress in warm, layered clothing.
    • Close off unneeded rooms.
    • When using an alternative heat source, follow operating instructions, use fire safeguards and be sure to properly ventilate.
    • Stuff towels and rags underneath doors to keep the heat in.
    • Cover windows at night.

    Only use a generator if you know how to operate it without hurting yourself, or electric utility employees.

    After an outage, power can return in spikes. Keep your electronics safe by unplugging them. Leave one light on to indicate that power has been restored then turn on other appliances and equipment one at a time.

  • Hagersville Santa Claus Parade

    This past Friday evening, we participated in the Hagersville Santa Claus parade. We decorated a truck and trailer, honked the horn, and handed out fun truck stickers to the kids who came out to watch. Despite the cold cold weather, we had a great night and were proud to participate in such a fun community event! A big thank you to Jeff, Jackie, Megan and Owen Barquest, Heather Devins, Brittany Gyokery and Kara Kett for your help with the parade.
