either wrap exposed pipes or allow faucets to slowly drip. Ensure
that irrigation systems are turned off and winterized.

sensitive to these extreme temperatures. Also remember to provide
adequate shelter or arrangements for outdoor pets.
In addition, low wind chills are expected and individuals are
urged to dress in layers as frostbite or hypothermia may set in
quickly if skin is exposed to the frigid conditions for prolonged
periods of time.
