Many (maybe most) of us in the U.S. are dealing with a seasonal cold snap this week. There are so many people without heat due to Hurricane Sandy, issues connected with being unemployed, financial circumstances, and everything in between. For those who can afford to do so, our local utility companies have donation options to help those who need it. In Maryland the BGE web site is http://www.bge.com/ourcommitments/community/energyassistance/pages/fuel-fund.aspx. I’m sure there are many organizations that do the same all across the country.
Please, if you own a pet, bring it inside when it’s so cold. It’s the humane thing to do (that’s my two cents).
Stay as warm as possible. Stay inside if you can. Curl up with a good book or watch a movie or catch up on your TV shows. Enjoy your families, your hobby, or your time alone.
And think about those who could use some assistance during this time.
