4 Ways to Stay Warm and Safe this Winter!

As snow and frigid temperatures are due to continue this week, here are our top 4 tips for keeping safe and warm.

Dress warm, that means Layers!
Keeping your core temperature warm is so important when we are faced with below freezing temperatures. Layer on clothes in order to fight the cold. Hypothermia is most likely to hit your extremities so be sure to cover your hands, feet and head!

Nutrition: Fuel for Survival.
Eating healthy, high fat foods during winter help keep you healthy, and also help keep you warm! Boosting the metabolism makes the body produce more heat. Despite common belief Alcohol actually decreased your core temperature. It can cause your body to sweat which will lower the bodies core temperature further.

Stop the Glare!
Wearing sunglasses in the snow is important to stop the glare. Important when walking but even more so when driving!

Keep Heat Constant.
Setting your thermometer to be the same temperature throughout the day and night is the best way to prevent your pipes from freezing. Letting your hot and cold faucets drip overnight and allowing heat to get to uninsulated pipes by opening cabinet doors can also help.

Stay Warm!

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
