It’s cold in Kawartha Lakes!

It's January in Ontario and it is very cold! MyKawartha reported, "Very cold temperatures and moderate winds of 30km per hour gusting to 50km per hour will accompany the snow resulting in wind chill values in the minus 20 to minus 30 range. These very cold wind chills are expected to last into Monday morning." It's so, so important to stay safe in these cold temperatures. Always check in on your friends and family - if you live alone consider a "buddy" system where you check in with a friend often! Wear layers of loose clothing to stay warm and try to stay inside as much as possible until it warms up. Always prepare with a plan and a disaster kit, make sure you are prepared if the power goes out! Stick it out for a little while, you'll be back to skiing and ice skating before you know it.
