It has been a while since I have talked about preparing. Winter is coming so now is the time to start thinking about cold weather preps.
Do you have an alternative heating source if you lose power? How about enough warm clothes (think layers) and blankets for everyone in the family? Do you have have a plan for the family to survive for a couple of days if you are snow or ice bound? Now is the time to check your supplies and make sure you have them in the house. That way you don’t have to make that mad dash to the store for toilet paper and milk along with everyone else in the area when that dreaded four letter word – SNOW – enters the forecast.
If you travel a lot you need to think about your cars too. Do you have an emergency kit in there? If so, make sure you add things like extra blankets and maybe hand and foot warmers. You may want to add some additional food items, think about some self heating MREs, that way you can have something warm if you are stuck in the middle of no where. Don’t forget to add kitty litter (non-clumping) and a small shovel to help dig out if you get stuck in the snow and ice. Oh and you may want to add some de-icer in case your locks get frozen.
So start your winter preps now and beat the rush.
