HOBO HOMEFRONT: Winter chill gives a reason to support the Hoboes

Published: Friday, January 10, 2014 at 01:12 PM.

This week has been the coldest I can remember for sunny Laurel Hill. At times, the temperature has been as cold as 17 degrees Fahrenheit. Brrrr!

The chill has certainly taken its toll.

Many families and businesses have had problems with frozen water pipes. Laurel Hill Head Start was  forced to close Tuesday and Wednesday due to this problem.

My family unfolded and used every blanket possible and threw extra logs on the fire to help our ever hard-working furnace.

We also enjoyed hot chocolate by the fireplace, drank from hot water bottles and used heating pads to help stay warm.

Of course, my favorite feet warmers are my German shepherd Trajan and Lab-pit mix Kelby. The best part? The warmth they provide doesn't add to the heating bill!

Staying warm on the outside is important, but so is staying warm on the inside. You get the full effect!
