In the Event of A Snowstorm by Susan Hanniford Crowley

I live in the snow zone, and no matter how prepared you think you are, there is always something you’ve forgotten. So I’ve made you (and myself) a checklist to get done before the snow arrives!

  1. Fill your car’s gas tank.
  2. Make sure you have plenty of water,
  3. Have food on hand that doesn’t require cooking.
  4. Make sure your heating device has adequate fuel to tide you over. (If I lose electricity, my heat will shut off. So I will burn wood as a backup.)
  5. Have lots of blankets, sweaters, socks, hats, and coats, in case, you need to dress in layers.
  6. Charge up all your devices-phones, e-readers, etc.
  7. Have batteries for flashlights, camping lanterns, and an emergency radio! (I spent a week once listening to that radio when the power went out.)
  8. Have all your medications filled if needed prior to the storm. Have cold pack, hot packs, and anything medical you might need.
  9. Have things planned for the family to do like board games, crocheting, knitting, coloring, and reading books.
  10. Have your external batteries charged, so when your phones lose power, you can plug them in and charge them again.
  11.  Reading a book on your Kindle or with the Kindle app on your tablet will take your mind off things. (For those who have their Kindles charged up, Vampire Princess of New York is a free read on Kindle Unlimited or you can buy it on Amazon Kindle.)

Right now, I am preparing for a large snowstorm to come into my area sometime Friday and then possibly continue through the weekend.

If I have forgotten anything, please, add to the list by commenting. When it comes to snow, get somewhere safe, stay there and be warm.

    Good list. I’ve never lived in snow country, so I wouldn’t have a clue as to how to prepare.

    One item we got is a portable radio that has a crank generator to run. There’s also the capability of charging electric devices. Ours has a clock and light with it. We take it with us when we travel and use it as our clock radio to wake us up in the morning.

    It would be amazing if you could afford a generator. I don’t live in Snow country anymore, but my son is in Michigan. And I have been there in the winter. Fortunately not when we lost power.

    Great post! I live in a hurricane zone, and we do some of the same things!
