The only good thing about a blizzard is that you are usually given some notice that it is on its way. This should give you enough time to buy some cocoa, batten down the hatches and light a fire in the fireplace. Follow these tips, and you'll stay safe and warm while the snow is piling on:
1. Add Extra Insulation to Your Windows and Doors

If your home is not well insulated, that freezing cold air will make its way into your living space.

Use old towels rolled up as an additional barrier for the space at the bottom of doors that lead outside.[click to continue...]

Now more than ever, the ways in which consumers are accessing services and products change in the blink of an eye. This means that a small business needs to be quick on their feet and flexible in order to keep up and keep a steady income flow.
