Preparing for Winter Weather

It's cold and rainy here today but the weather a few hours from here looks a bit like this

My first thought is time to get prepared. I work early mornings and sometimes work late into the day coming home in the evening. So the thought of commuting to and from work enters my thoughts and since we are not always ready for early morning not knowing what will happen when we are a sleep it is best to do things ahead of time.

We have been hit with winter storms that traps us inside the house. No chance to get out and get anything so having an emergency supply kit on hand is what we need to do.
Things we will need in our kit will includ
snowflake-iconThree days’ food that doesn’t need refrigeration or electricity to prepare it.
snowflake-iconThree days’ water (a gallon per person per day).
snowflake-iconA battery-powered and/or hand-crank radio with extra batteries.
snowflake-iconA first-aid kit, prescription medications, blankets and warm clothing, and supplies for special members of your household and pet items.
snowflake-iconA power pack for recharging cellphones and other mobile devices.
snowflake-iconFor businesses and offices, keep some bottles of water and food bars on hand.
snowflake-iconHave a radio to hear local information about whether or not it is safe to travel. Officials may advise staying in place until it is safe to travel.
snowflake-iconBe sure to keep an emergency kit in your car as well.

Remember it is very important to stay informed before, during and after the storm. Local media should keep their listeners informed of any winter storm watches and warnings and road conditions
