Fun on a "snow" day!

Winter safety tips from American Red Cross

  • Wear layers of clothing to stay warm, along with a hat, mittens and waterproof, insulated boots. This video offers more information on how to dress for the cold.
  • Avoid frozen pipes - run water, even at a trickle, to help prevent them from freezing. Visit here for more information.
  • Be extremely careful if you have to shovel snow. Take frequent breaks and stay hydrated. 
  • Watch for hypothermia and frostbite. Hypothermia symptoms include confusion, dizziness, exhaustion and severe shivering. Frostbite symptoms include numbness, flushed gray, white, blue or yellow skin discoloration, numbness, or waxy feeling skin. 
  • Don’t forget your pets – bring them indoors. If they can’t come inside, make sure they have enough shelter to keep them warm and that they can get to unfrozen water. We have additional information available here.
  • Check on your neighbors, especially elderly people living alone, people with disabilities and children.
  • Avoid driving on snow-covered roads if possible. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle
  • If your car breaks down, do not try to walk to safety. Tie a bright cloth to the antenna. Start the car and use the heater for about 10 minutes every hour, making sure the exhaust pipe is clear. Keep one window away from the wind slightly open.
  • Download the American Red Cross First Aid App for quick, expert advice on what to do in case of an emergency. This free app is available in your app store. See all Red Cross apps at redcross.org/mobileapps

    Infant one love story!

    Boy meets girl. Girl isn't so sure. Boy can't stop thinking about girl. Girl realizes she likes boy. Boy is ecstatic. The two look dreamily into each others eyes!

    Keep your kids active all year long


    Make physical activity something for the whole family!

     

    • Talk as a family about physical activity as a fun lifelong way to take care of your body.  Try not to talk about exercise as a chore.  Remember-your kiddos take their cues from you!
    • Celebrate accomplishments with fun activities instead of food or extra TV time- think roller skating, rock climbing, trips to a favorite playground
    • Let your children choose the activity.  Organized sports are great, but there are so many activities children can do to be active that are not competitive- plus you can do it with them!  Follow their lead!
