How to Help Prepare for a Snow Storm
Is there a winter storm on the horizon? Take some time now to gather the supplies you will need to ride out the storm at home, or to safely venture outside if you must. Once you have taken the appropriate precautions, you can focus on enjoying the winter wonderland outside your window.
- Make sure you have a snow shovel and ice melt to keep walkways clear and safe.
- Check that you have sufficient heating fuel for your home and fuel for your generator, if you have one.
- If you will be using a fireplace or wood-burning stove, you should have a good supply of dry, seasoned wood.
- Have warm clothing and blankets on hand, and stock non-perishable food items and necessary medications to last you and your family for several days.
