Winter has arrived in force! We got our first decent snowfall here in Minnesota on Saturday. On top of the snow, we are getting slammed by January-like cold. We will be dealing with -20 degree Fahrenheit temperatures by Saturday here in the Twin Cities. In fact, as I recorded this podcast, it was -1 degree Fahrenheit (and feels like -15 degrees Fahrenheit)! Winter is here, and it is time to talk about some key winter tips for preparing yourself, your equipment and your house for this kind of cold and these kind of conditions.
As an aside, we welcome new listeners to our weekly podcast from our new Stitcher channel! If you are new to the Small Scale Life Podcast, this is a weekly show dedicated to developing a sustainable small scale life through healthy living, gardening, frugal living and having adventures along the way!
