    When winter storms move through the area, unfortunate things can happen like power outages. Here are some tips to keeping warm.

    Preparation

    Make sure you are prepared by having your chimney cleaned, stack wood where it’s easy to get to, cover it with a tarp, and have plenty of firestarters on hand.

    Preventing Cold Infiltration

    Try to restrict trips in and out of the house. If the children are going out to play then bring in more wood. If you aren’t using your fireplace make sure the damper is securely closed.

    Keeping Warm

    Keep a steady fire going in your fireplace or woodstove. Baking cookies will also help warm the house if the utilities are going. But never rely on your oven for a lone heat source. Consider purchasing a generator if your electricity is out.

    Safety

    Never leave your woodstove or fireplace unattended. Never burn anything other than what your fireplace or stove is designed for (wood, etc.). Store the ashes safely in a metal container with a tight fitting lid on a non combustible surface. Don’t empty ashes when the wind is blowing and wait till the ashes are cool. Keep the appropriate clearances from your fireplace, woodstove or heatrer to combustibles. Keep a close watch over children and pets.

    Winter storms can be enjoyable even during the worst of times. Keeping warm with wood tends to bring a family closer together. Just use common sense and keep safety in mind.
