Hey ladies. Since a large portion of the country is feeling super cold temperatures with wind chills nearly 40 below, I thought I’d share this link with the phone numbers for various “hypothermia hotlines” throughout the country. No one deserves to freeze to death.

I feel so bad for the homeless and for stray animals tonight. FI and I were out about an hour ago digging his car out of the 2 feet of snow we have (literally). He stopped to get gas on the way home, and in the 3 minutes he was out there, his eye glasses actually froze over. We had to stick them by the heater in the car for a few minutes to unfreeze.
Point being, it’s dangerous out there, I’ve lived in Canada my whole life, and I’ve never seen it this bad. With our wind chills and warnings, we’re sitting at about -50F right now.

Thank you for this! I was thinking about it on my way home yesterday. There are a lot of homeless in DC and Baltimore 🙁

Shelters can definitely use extra donations and volunteers this time of year! Due to the historically cold temperatures, my church decided to operate a temporary homeless shelter for 3 nights. We started with a group of about 10, and it’s been amazing to see how our efforts have grown with community and volunteer support. We even made the local news and CNN!!

There were a couple of people in Giant last night…=( I know that all the shelters in our area were making plans.

Its not immediate help, but donating to shelters, emergency shelters in particular or safe beds is an excellent option. These places are around to help people get in from the cold, but the sad reality is there’s not enough space to help everyone who needs it.

Prayers for all of those (humans and animals) not able to find good shelter!
