The Changing Face of Transportation





Can we all agree that we've officially had enough winter weather now?  After three days of being stuck at the house with three crazy boys 7 years and younger, being back in the office today is so much better than I expected it could be.


With record low temps, here are a few creative ways to stay warm thanks for our friends at Distractify: 

  • In the morning, open curtains and raise blinds so sunlight can flow in.
  • Shower with the door open.  The warm, humid air created by the shower will help to raise the temperature of the whole house.
  • Air dry some of your laundry.
  • Do a little baking.

Be safe and stay warm!
