You asking advice about getting through a bad winter? I have been hearing about all the snow and cold in that area and it seems all over the US the weather is not doing what it normally should.
Of course my 1st thought was if you live in one of those areas, stock up on firewood, books, wine and chocolates and just hunker down till it is over!
Of course living in Florida we don't have to deal with those problems. We will get some cooler weather, but it only last a day or two..and so far that is all we have had. I love the cold here, so I'm hoping we aren't done with it here....today it will be 72, but by Sat it will be up to 80 again! Just not ready for it yet.
