Brrr…The Polar Vortex Is Upon Us. Here Are Some Cold Weather Safety Tips

Baby, it’s cold outside. (I like that version, don’t you?)

To be honest, the weather’s not so cold here in the Portland, OR area. Need evidence? I biked to work today.

But we know we’ve been lucky, and we’ve been watching the weather forecasts and the news and feeling for all of you further east who are getting hit by something few of us had ever heard of before: a polar vortex. Well, at least that’s a new one to me. Maybe you sharpies knew that term before. 🙂

Anyway, we thought we’d use the opportunity to drop some quick links to helpful information on you. Check ’em out below and stay warm and safe.
