I know this may not be debt related, but we are anticipating our first snowy/icey weather here in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area tonight (last night when you read this, I suppose.) Originally it was predicted to get here today. I stocked up last week on food/water just in case since I had a crazy busy weekend with Little Gymnast out of town meet and Sea Cadet’s drill weekend. Feeling pretty comfortable with where we are at, but thought I’d throw this question out there: What are your must have items for winter weather?
Since I don’t drive AT ALL if the roads are hazardous, I make sure that we are well stocked on all food essentials, plus batteries, flashlights and charge all our electronics fully. Do you have any must dos to prepare where you are?
We are blessed that we don’t get too much snow here although every year that seems to increase. As a result of the last couple of years, we are fully stocked on snow pants, gloves, sleds, hats and other warming stuff. I HATE the snowy stuff, I don’t mind the cold, but the snow and ice is not my thing at all. This year I’m dreading the dog chores with snowy weather since last year we could just let them out the door…now we have to walk them which normally is no issue, but in snowy, icy, not so much.
Any tips, tricks or ideas for getting through winter? What to keep in stock, what to ignore? I’m definitely all ears.
