With winter all around us all around the country I’ve been tuning into the Weather Channel and local weather stations every night. I went into freak out mode last week when they were predicting 8 inches of snow with more on the way, so I sent my husband out to get our family Winter Weather ready.
We purchased chains, and stocked up the refrigerator. We made sure we had candles and batteries for all of the flashlights. Now, I’m not sure if I should say that we were lucky the storm changed to rain, or if I should say we’re sad that the storm changed to rain. Either way, our preparedness was not needed. But it never hurts to be over prepared.
They keeps saying with with this La Nina season about to switch in February we could still see major winter weather, and many parts of the country already are. Are you prepared?
