With Temps Dropping 30+ Degrees Time to Bring Pets Indoors
If your dog, cat, or any other pets you possess are accustomed to being outdoors year-round, then it's time to put a kibosh on those plans this weekend and bring them indoors! As of today, Friday, January 27th, a winter storm warning remains in effect, with temperatures expected to plunge from 33 to 4 degrees by this evening. By tomorrow, wind chill values will hit -15, and temperatures will drop to -24 by Saturday night. Even though no new snow is expected Sunday or Monday, temperatures on both days will be very harsh for humans and pets alike, so refrain from enduring any extensive outdoor activities during that timeframe.
A Sign Pets have More Clout than Your Kids
A Sign Pets have More Clout than Your Kids
Most parents have the instinct to be nurturers from the get-go. Some parents coddle and dote over their offspring like there's no tomorrow, while others have a "tough love" approach to parenting. Either way, parents at some point (cross your fingers) earn kudos from family and friends for raising "good kids". In a sense, spoiled but structured children with insight into the world around them. Now, I wouldn't know anything about the "spoiled" part growing up (do you believe that for a minute?), but I do know that a distinct dynamic exists in homes with multiple kids. Come on, we all know it's true; parents treat each child differently in one way or another, even if it's minute. I admit I was less lenient with my eldest than I was with my other kiddos. Plus, the fact that they didn't know what the word "grounded" meant until someone told them at school was a sure sign that they got their way quite often as kids.
