June 21st marked the official start of summer which means an increased chance of bad weather. Some of you have already experienced some severe weather. As Windstream values you and your safety, for this Tuesday’s Tip, I wanted to share some ideas you can use to prepare for bad weather situations. Keep an eye on the local weather and Know the DifferenceIf you know bad weather is coming, make sure you are aware of the progression and path of the storm. Generally, local television stations update their websites with current weather information. You can also download a weather app on your phone or digital device to receive up-to-date information and to see if there is a watch or warning in your area whether you are at home or away. Have a planProtecting yourself and your family can be made easier when you have a plan. Once you have an emergency plan in place, conduct a family meeting to discuss how to handle severe weather situations and show everyone where the emergency kit is. Some suggestions of what to have in a kit are included here.UnplugFor thunderstorms, unplug any electronics from electrical outlets. This can protect your televisions, computers and gaming consoles from a lightning strike. You may also want to unplug any telephone lines plugged into jacks. After the stormOnce the severe weather has passed and you are safe, check your home for any possible damage either to the home or around the home. Check for down power lines or telephone lines and report them to the appropriate entity. For your safety, make sure to let the company you call handle the move and repair of the line. Note: To report an issue with your phone service, please call our Repair Department at 1-800-347-1991 or contact us via e-mail. We are open 24/7 and offer an automated service to report your issue.

With summer, comes the 4th of JulyIndependence Day falls on a Friday this year. If you are planning a party, you may want music in the background. Here is a list, in no particular order, of 5 of the most played songs (and some of my favorites) during the 4th of the July holiday. You may also hear these songs during a local parade or fireworks celebration. However you celebrate, have a safe and happy 4th of July.
