Call it the Oklahoma way... when the temperatures drop, we make it a point to check on our friends and neighbors. Hypothermia can be deadly, so let's not take any chances. Thankfully, falls on icy steps, sidewalks or streets have not been a concern yet. However, the dangerously cold weather can be potentially deadly. AARP Oklahoma is advising family members, caregivers and friends to keep a close eye on older adults as they are especially vulnerable to hypothermia.

Over the past week, the talk of the town has been the winter blizzard that is set to hit tonight. Rumor is that Pennsylvania will get about 18 inches of snow, and have wind and snow drift. Schools are letting out early. Shopping center shelves are emptying out. People are taking precautions and you should be doing the same!
