You always hear…stock up on food and make sure you have a battery operated radio…with FRESH BATTERIES!
So many people have bad storm amnesia and think…I just need to get home. Well once you get home imagine the power going out and tons of snow comes, you can’t get out for work or for provisions. Just like a boyscout be prepared.
When the power goes out the first thing I notice is the silence, WIL will be on the air…so for weather updates and of course entertainment make sure you have those radios. Better yet a few years ago I picked up a generator for the family and although it has been used very little it has come in handy during nasty storms…I suggest for lets say…Valentines Day get one! Now you might get in the doghouse at the moment…but wait till that first power outage…you’ll be regarded as a hero!
And for those of you with 4 wheel drive…let’s be respectful of those without!
