All indications are that we’re about to get a big old snow bucket dumped on all of our heads over the next few days, and after that, it’s going to be colder than an eskimo ice cream sandwich made of icicles.
Here are a couple helpful tips for the winter weather.
1. No matter how bad it gets out there, don’t start a fire in a metal trash can in your living room to try to warm your house.
2. Gas grills are not meant for indoor use. Under any circumstance.
Stay warm out there, folks. Here’s the list this week.
