How to Prepare For a Winter Storm

1/21/2021 (Permalink)

A winter storm can strike very quickly and, no matter where you are, you need to be ready. Today, we’re gonna list some important items to have in your house and your car in case a winter storm strikes. 

In both your home and your car, you should have a flashlight. At your home, it can assist you if there is a power outage. While candles could also help light up your home, a flashlight or even an electric lantern is safer. If you do have candles, make sure you have matches on hand. If you’re in your car, a flashlight could be beneficial if you get stuck in snow or ice during nighttime. With having flashlights, it is also important to have batteries in case the current batteries die. It could also be helpful to have a hand crank or battery operated radio on hand to stay informed. 

Also, in your car, keep a shovel, in case you need to shovel your way out of snow. It is also important to make sure your car always has a full tank of gas. Sand or kitty litter could also be beneficial in order to gain traction on the ground if there is ice. Additionally, keep extra blankets in your trunk in case you get stuck in your car. It also could be useful to have a hat and gloves. 

In your home, have a three day supply of water and nonperishable food, like peanut butter, canned goods, etc. Also, if you use daily medication, make sure you have a week’s worth of your medication on hand just in case. 

These things are pretty easy to compile and could be a major help if there is a winter storm.
