Winter weather has not really hit the Columbia Basin yet but it looks like we are going to hit some cold temps over the next couple of nights with lows in the 20's.

So that's not really what is the coldest place on earth. How would you like to start your day off in a climate like this? Polar Bears may like it but Big Bear.....not so much......

Remember a couple of simple tips to stay safe in the colder temps

1. Do not burn propane space heaters indoors

2. Keep heat lamps away from flammable materials

3. Do not leave candles burning

4. leave cabinet doors open so air can circulate and leave a trickle of water so pipes don't freeze

5. Disconnect your water hoses from the house
