La Niña is coming! Again!

La Niña is characterized by unusually cold ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific, compared to El Niño, which is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures.

This is the second consecutive La Niña winter. Last year’s episode was atypically short, forming in November 2016 and gone by February 2017.

It seems that the upcoming La Niña of 2017–2018 is going to be weak and relatively short-lived, too. The equatorial waters of the eastern and central Pacific are only slightly cooler than usual, which means that the effects of La Niña are expected to be weaker. So stay warm and stay safe during this winter!

Don’t be stuck, for the most snow to fall from mid-December to mid-February .  Are you ready for it? Make sure you are. Stock up and visit www.xynyth.com

Winter is coming!

It’s always a good idea to learn about what to do to prepare your home for the winter.

Here are some brilliant ideas from LifeHacker: How to properly De-Ice Your Home

Buy the right ice melting product for your driveway and walkways.

There are many other choices than plain rock salt depending on your concerns:

Eco-friendly, safe on concrete, gentle on landscaping, no residue, pet-friendly, non-corrosive, LEED compliant…etc.

  • Know how much ice melt you need.

Check the instructions for the specific product you buy.

Know how much area you need to cover, and how many times you will need to cover it.

  • Use the ice melt the right way

Pre-treat your walkway and driveways before it snows. Mix a little sand with ice melt can provide traction.

Remove snow before using ice melt.

  • Prevent and clear ice dam on your roof

Ice dams prevent water runoff from flowing to the ground below, they can tear off gutters, loosen shingles, and lead to leaks when snow melts.

Buy roof rakes or DIY Snow ripper to clear the snow off rooftop after each snowstorm.
