Protect your home and car against ice and snow 


A colder, snowier, drought-busting winter
 could be on its way to the Pacific Northwest, says NOAA. Its long-range forecasts show up to a 50% chance of below-normal temperatures combined with above-average precipitation for Washington and parts of Oregon, thanks to a threepeat of the La Nina weather pattern.

Here’s how to help your home and car stay safe in the ice and snow:’

  1. Disconnect your garden hose
  2. Open under-sink cabinet doors on exterior walls
  3. Keep the heat on but turn off the main water valve
  4. Wrap insulation around pipes
  5. Winterize vacation cabins
  6. Get your furnace professionally serviced
  7. Get your wood-burning chimney professionally cleaned
