Friendly reminder to protect the four "Ps" during winter season: People, pets, plants, and pipes. 

Layer up and wear layers of lightweight clothing to stay warm. If it's too cold for you, it's also too cold for your furry friends. Keep pets indoors. Turn off unused space heaters and check fireplace embers and make sure anything flammable is kept at a safe distance. Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks and cover your plants, they are beautiful sights in and outside but can be quite sensitive to extreme temperature swings.
