If you haven't already, it's time to stock up on all the essential storm gear. Here's our Snow Storm Emergency Preparedness Kit.
NOAA Radio - We like the Midland HH50. It's compact and versatile. Most importantly, it has a standby mode that automatically switches to channels with updates.
Candles - The Triwick burns for at least 120 hours. It's hot enough to boil water on and creates an astonishing amount of light. Contains wicks, grills and matches in a safe metal can.
Food - Datrex 3600 calorie bars are great to have in any emergency kit. They're compact, nutritionally fortified and they taste good. Make sure you have shelf-stable food you don't need to cook.
Water - Water is always the most important item to survival. If you don't already have 3 gallons of water stocked per person in your house, get it now.
Blankets - It's gonna be cold. Make sure you've got warm clothes, sleeping bags or something to wrap up in when the temperature drops.
Propane Heater - The Mr.Heater is a great, compact heater. It's got a sensor that shuts off when oxygen levels get low. And it runs on easy-to-store propane.
Cash - Because when telecomm goes down, you won't be able to use your card.
Lantern - The eGear 30 day lantern is a super bright, super effeciant lantern. It blasts 300 lumens in the high setting and will last 30 days in the low setting.
Comfort - For when things get scary/lonely/boring.
Entertainment - To be mixed responsibly with the above item.
