2020 Hurricane Season Is In Full Swing—Eight Ways To Prepare Now

“Hurricane season officially runs through November …..

(NAPSI)—Hurricane season officially runs through November, and while no one can predict what lies ahead, there are things you can do to prepare. Here, T-Mobile offers eight ways to stay connected.

1.Make a disaster kit: Include things such as batteries, snacks, water, a first aid kit, a flashlight and device chargers. 

2.Update your family, friends and emergency services contact numbers. Make sure they’re saved and backed up in your devices AND written down someplace accessible. 

3.Subscribe to official text alerts and connect with official social networks to learn about new developments before, during and after a disaster. 

4.Keep your mobile devices fully charged. Have charging cables handy and consider picking up a car or portable charging device. 

5.Protect your technology with waterproof re-sealable plastic bags. 

6.Download emergency-assistance apps from the Red Cross and FEMA. 

7.Make sure your phone supports Wireless Emergency Alerts and that you have enabled notifications on your device. Visit t-mobile.com/wea for details on how to set up alerts on T-Mobile and Sprint devices. 

8.Set up Wi-Fi Calling on your phone if you have a phone that supports it. For Apple phones, go to Settings > Phone > Wi-Fi Calling; for Android phones, go to Settings > More Connection Settings > Wi-Fi Calling. 

Managing Service Interruptions 

Even with the measures T-Mobile and other wireless operators take to prepare their networks against disasters, there is still the potential for power outages and other communication service interruptions. 

If your mobile service is interrupted or spotty immediately following a hurricane, try the following: 

•If you have home broadband and power but no mobile service, try Wi-Fi calling, which lets T-Mobile and Sprint customers with capable devices text and make and receive voice calls via any capable Wi-Fi connection. IMPORTANT: If you have to call 911 using Wi-Fi, be sure to give your address to the operator. 

•If you have a connection to the T-Mobile and Sprint networks, keep calls to a minimum and as short as possible. This helps reduce the load on the network so others can get through. 

•If you are a Sprint customer on the Sprint network, you can automatically roam on the T-Mobile network if the Sprint network is affected and T-Mobile is not. 

•Send a text instead of making a call. Text messages get through more easily during times of congestion. 

More Information 

There are many options for staying up to date on response and recovery efforts: You can check the T-Mobile Newsroom at t-mobile.com/news; visit Twitter at @TMobile and @Sprint; follow T-Mobile’s President of Technology, Neville Ray, on Twitter; or call 611 from your T-Mobile or Metro by T-Mobile handset. In addition, Sprint customers can call 888-211-4727. You can also get the latest storm forecasts online from NOAA’s National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center.

5 Seasonal DIY Home Improvement Projects

Inspect your home’s exterior…..

(Family Features) The calendar pages may be turning fast, but it’s not too late to take advantage of late summer warm temperatures and do some work around the house. Now is the time to wrap up home improvement projects before the weather turns too cold.

Consider these five easy DIY tasks that can set you up for a warm, safe and pest-free fall:

Perform routine HVAC maintenance. Heating and cooling systems need regular service to operate at peak efficiency. Some tasks are best left to the pros, but there is plenty you can do on your own to minimize expenses and ensure your unit maintains its performance level. With the breaker and gas off, wipe the exterior of your furnace with a damp rag then remove the access door and vacuum the burners, base and blower compartment. Remove and clean the blower with a vacuum and small brush then use a drinking straw to blow dust off the pilot. Also inspect the flame sensor, drive belt and air filter, and clean or replace as needed.

Air seal drafty areas. The gaps around windows and door frames give unwanted air an open invitation into a home. However, you can quickly and easily block the flow of air for greater comfort and lower energy bills. If the doors and windows are already finished, start by removing the trim. Prep the area by removing dust and debris. Using a quality sealant like Great Stuff Window & Door Insulating Foam Sealant, apply the foam to fill in about 50% of the gap around the window or door and framework, allowing room for the foam to expand. Wipe away imperfections and let sit 10-15 minutes until it’s no longer tacky. Gently press the expanded foam into the gap using a putty knife.

Check for damage to hardscaping. Walkways, patios and decks are all susceptible to wear that can lead to tripping hazards or allow rain, snow and ice to seep in and create larger problems. Take time to thoroughly assess these hardscape features and identify issues like loose stones and cracks in concrete that need repairs. Securing materials, filling cracks and patching problem areas can help prevent further damage during the colder months while restoring aesthetic appeal.

Inspect your home’s exterior. Many elements of your home serve essential roles in protecting your safety, regulating your home’s efficiency and preventing damage. It’s important to regularly check your roof for signs it needs repaired, such as missing or cracked shingles or noticeable sagging. Gutters can also accumulate a great deal of debris from falling leaves. Clearing these before cooler temperatures set in can help ensure rain has a clear path away from your house, protecting the walls and foundation. Also pay attention to other elements like paint that may require periodic updates to maintain its protective function.

Eliminate entry points for pests. When temperatures start dropping, you’re likely to see some movement with creatures who want to enjoy the comfort of your home. Make it clear they’re not welcome by sealing up places they may be creeping in. A solution like Great Stuff Pestblock Insulating Foam Sealant lets you fill gaps and openings with a quick bead of foam. If a rodent has an established pathway, try using a combination of steel wool and the foam to deter it from gnawing through the barrier.

Find a Grill to Fit Your Style

Even if you’re still a grill master-in-training, natural and propane gas grills are practically foolproof…..

(Family Features) Whether you’re ready for a grilling marathon or want an easy way to elevate each meal, there’s an outdoor grill to fit your style. Beyond your eating habits and schedule, understanding the many styles of outdoor grills and the benefits of each is crucial to choosing the right one for you.

Get started on your next grilling adventure with advice and tips from chef Jason Morse, Ace Hardware grilling expert and owner and executive chef of 5280 Culinary, about some of the most popular options that can help you turn up the heat.

The Everyday Grill
If you’re always on the go and looking for fast and easy meals that go from prep to plate within 30 minutes, a gas grill may be perfect for you. Gas grills offer fast heat up times, higher temperatures and faster cooking. You can prepare your proteins while the grill heats up and have dinner on the table in next to no time. 

Even if you’re still a grill master-in-training, natural and propane gas grills are practically foolproof. They’re quick to ignite, require less cleanup after cooking and they’re versatile enough to allow for searing, smoking, plank, rotisserie and indirect grilling. Temperature control knobs offer heat control for even cooking and many models also include built-in thermometers to help ensure your food is perfectly cooked every time.

Hot and fast is what a gas grill delivers, and an option like the Weber Genesis II E-325 Liquid Propane Grill features an exclusive grilling engine, three powerful burners, a grill handle light, enclosed grill cabinet for storage and smart technology compatibility.

Time for Wood-Fired Fun
Wood-fired flavor takes time to create, but you can slice a little off the wait time with a wood pellet grill. These grills have shorter heat up times, medium-to-high temperatures and enhance the food with wood flavor. Wood pellet grills are also good add-on choices for pit bosses and first-timers alike since they can be used to reverse sear or add smoke prior to searing.

Pellet grills cook foods a bit differently than other types of grills. They use wood pellets as fuel, which adds a distinct flavor profile to your foods. Adjusting the type of hardwood pellets (such as apple, hickory, mesquite or oak) allows you to create a range of different flavors.

An option like the Traeger Ironwood 885 with Pellet Sensor can take your craft to the next level. This grill features a drivetrain designed for fast heating along with a super smoke mode, large capacity (10 chickens, seven racks of ribs or nine pork butts) and technology that lets you keep track of progress without standing over the grill.

Weekend Warrior Charcoal
Charcoal can add depth to the flavors brought about by grilling your food. While this grill type takes a little more time to get the fire established, it is a practical choice for large groups and ideal for an afternoon to kick back and enjoy the process. Charcoal grills are some of the most economical options, but still provide a traditional grilling experience perfect for classics like juicy steaks or backyard favorites like burgers and dogs with flavors that can make nearly everyone happy.

Charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal provide the fuel, heat and smoky flavor this kind of grilling is known for by cooking low and slow or on high heat for searing. While there are plenty of different charcoal grills to choose from, one popular option is The Big Green Egg XL. It’s a high-quality, versatile and easy-to-use outdoor cooker, offering a variety of cooking methods from traditional grilling and smoking to baking and roasting as well as precise temperature control and an efficient design to make lighting the charcoal simple.

With its selection of gas, charcoal and smoker grills and grilling accessories that can help turn your cooker into a wood-fired pizza oven, charcoal wok station or smashburger grill, a retailer like Ace Hardware is a one-stop-shop for all your outdoor cooking needs. You can also up your grilling game with rib racks, chicken thrones, Planchas (griddles) and more. 

Visit acehardware.com or your local store to find the perfect grill and accessories.
