Well here we are in September and back to school or work after our vacations and summer recess, ready to carry on with our lives and hit the books our the job.
Fall and winter weather preparation
It doesn’t matter where you live in the northern hemisphere, when the temperature begins to cool down for fall and winter, its time to take stock of what we need to sustain our lives if an ice storm or blizzard traps us indoors for the duration. A good old fashioned bundling up trapped air acts to insulate us, so layers are better than a thick wool blanket or a heavy jacket.Try to keep dry and remove those extra layers if you begin to sweat. NOTE: One of the survival tactics we learned in the military is, that if you strip and crawl into a low temperature sleeping bag, you can sleep nicely outdoors even if ice forms on the trees around you. I experienced this on a mountain top called “Kennedy Meadows” in the Sierra’s in California. So if your traveling this winter you may consider taking along some sleeping bags for each person in the car, incase of being snowed in on some road. Taking water and food bars is also a safe idea, as well as some of the kits we offer.
Snowed in, in your home? Have your fire-logs or wood close to the back door. If no Fireplace have you enough coal or fuel oil on hand? Those of us who have natural gas or propane to heat the home are better off, but only if your propane tank is filled before you think you’ll need it. We roughed it one winter by sleeping downstairs in front of the fireplace. Be sure you have proper ventilation; “Carbon Monoxide” is a silent killer.
One tip to use tour fire place better as told by a Boy Scout leader: “Place balled up newspaper under the grate and pile kindling on top. Get the fire get the pile burning well, then lay two or three logs across the grate like railroad ties. Add two or three more on top, perpendicular to the bottom layer. This crisscross or “log Cabin”-style fire will direct heat into the room instead of up the chimney. A fire made with six to eight logs two to four inches in diameter should last about two hours and will heat a medium size room. Feed the fire to keep in going. Don’t forget to open the Flue Your family and friends want you here in the spring!
If you have central heat, have you changed the Filters recently and checked the fan motor or belt drives? For wall or floor heaters have your gas man tune it up for you. The Red Cross expert tip: “Before buying a CO alarm, check to make sure it is UL listed, standard 2034 or there is information on the package or owner’s manual that says that the detector/alarm meets the requirements of the IAS 6-96 standard. Also replace the batteries in you smoke detector and CO alarm at least twice a year.” It is recommended to change them and your furnace filter in the spring and fall. You may want to replace the furnace filters more often in the winter.
