As Chief Lanier reminded us last time it got frigid:

“Please be on the look out for the elderly, others that may not have heat, those that do not have a roof over their heads, and our pets. If you know a neighbor without heat or if you run across a homeless person and they need assistance please call our hypothermia hotline at (202) 399-7093 or 1 (800) 535-7252 to get them the needed aid. Also, please don’t forget to bring all of your pets indoors.”

Also anyone from cold climes have advice on preventing pipes from freezing?

And in lighter news:

“Vortex Vodka! In honor of the tomorrow’s polar vortex, Russian eatery Mari Vanna [1141 Connecticut Avenue, NW] will be offerings all patrons one complimentary shot of vodka tomorrow [Tuesday Jan. 7th] anytime before 7pm. Tomorrow’s DC weather is expected to be the coldest we’ve seen in 20 years. Diners can warm up with an array of house-infused vodka flavors, from seaberry to horseradish and pineapple to cucumber dill.”
