Blizzard Precautions

While we are still narrowing down who in the Great Plains will have the worst of the blizzard, there is now little doubt the issue is where, not if.

Some precautions:
  • Fill your gas tank. Make sure you have ice scraper. 
  • If the snow is sufficiently wet, there will be power failures due to the high winds and snow loading of lines and trees (branches leaning into the wires). Get a auto power inverter that can keep your cell phone or computer charged. 
  • If you must keep medicine chilled or run other appliances, get a generator.
  • Refill prescriptions
  • Go to the grocery store to get any necessary food
  • Go to the ATM and get cash. 
Any travel should be completed before the storm begins. With gusts to 40 mph in some areas there will be severe drifting of the snow which did not occur with the first storm.
