Don’t get caught unprepared for this year’s snow storms! Winter is imminent, and the sooner you prepare, the better equipped you can be for the harsh cold that’s to come.
Make sure you gather supplies for you and your family in case of a power outage or extreme snowfall! Your snow storm survival kit should include the following items:
Remember, you could be trapped inside for several days, so you’ll want enough food, water, and equipment to keep everyone nourished and happy.
Snow Removal Supplies
Having taken care of your survival kit, your next priority is dealing with the actual snow outside your house. You’ll need supplies that help you remove snow while providing you a safe path from your home to the street.
If you live in a neighborhood with children, feel free to hire them to shovel out your driveway! It’s a good way to take some of the workload off of you, plus it makes other children feel great about their work.
Not everything is based on supplies. There are other strategies for dealing with the snow that you need to implement for yourself and your family.
When it comes to snow, make sure that you use common sense. For instance, it’s not a great idea to schedule doctors’ appointments during a week that has heavy snowfall, because you’ll most likely need to cancel if you can’t drive out there. It’s also a wise decision to put your car in the garage, if possible, to protect it from the harsh environment.
Good luck this winter!
