Let‚Äôs not get carried away here.
Yes, it‚Äôs cold outside ‚Äî but the weather is not as diabolical as many news reports would have you thinking.
It is January in Somerset County. It is supposed to be less than zero degrees. Most people probably have parents who talk about walking uphill both ways in colder temperatures.
The point: Wear a hat, gloves ‚Äî and if you are really scared ‚Äî a scarf. You will be fine. There are people at the nearby resorts skiing in this stuff.
This isn‚Äôt intended to downplay the financial task of heating a home, which can be challenging. This article has some information on how to receive help with that.
But when it is all said and done ‚Äî January in the Laurel Highlands is going to be cold.
