Winter Storm Tips

Another big storm is bearing down on the East Coast  --  so I thought I would post a link to FEMA's winter weather tips.

The building blocks of the tips for winter weather apply to those of us in other parts of the country as well.

If you keep a stash of extra batteries on hand, you're also likely to have created a family emergency plan and even perhaps to have 5-7 days of emergency food, medicine and other supplies on hand.    If you haven't found the time to take care of those items yet, pick a day this next week and get after it!  Once you've established the basics, it's a simple matter to check out the supplies once a year, replace anything that might have expired, and perhaps add a few more items to your stash labeled for emergencies.

Meanwhile, our thoughts go out to those on the East Coast, who've already gone through this once this month.
