The National Weather Service suggests what to do if you're stuck inside:
- If using a fireplace or wood stove, make sure these devices are properly vented.
- If you have a gas furnace, make sure its exhaust pipe isn't blocked by a snowdrift, as soon as it's safe to go out.
- If you have an upstairs gas furnace that vents out the roof, you may need to turn off the upstairs unit until the snow melts off your roof.
