Cold weather hazard

12/25/08 (Thu)

The recent extended cold snap is cause for concern – even to those who remain in their homes and don’t venture outdoors. Even if people feel warm, cozy and safe, they may not be.
This past week, as temperatures remained well below zero and the wind caused temperatures to feel even colder, North Dakota residents were given a reminder of the true meaning of the word frigid.
Late last week, numerous area residents had first-hand knowledge of another winter hazard – sewer vents that became blocked by an accumulation of snow and ice.
Area residents are reminded to be aware of the hazard.
