𝗣𝗢𝗧𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗜𝗔𝗟 𝗪𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗥 𝗪𝗘𝗔𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗥 𝗔𝗟𝗘𝗥𝗧Here are some of the smartest essentials to purchase in advance of an impending storm:Bottled water (at least one gallon per person per day, for at least three days)Canned goods, especially cozy, warming foods like soups and stewsSnack foods like chips, crackers, and cookies in sealed packagesCereal and granolaAnything jarred, from jellies to pickles to meatsCanned tuna and salmonPeanut butter and other shelf-stable nut butters, a vegan-friendly source of proteinDried pasta and jarred sauceWax-sealed hard cheesesSalted butter, which lasts longer at room temperature than unsalted butterDried fruitNutsJerkyEnergy barsShelf-stable juiceCoffee, tea and hot cocoa mix (and maybe some marshmallows)Extra paper products like toilet paper and paper towels𝗟𝗔𝗦𝗧 𝗠𝗜𝗡𝗨𝗧𝗘 𝗦𝗡𝗢𝗪 𝗦𝗧𝗢𝗥𝗠 𝗙𝗢𝗢𝗗 𝗟𝗜𝗦𝗧You’ll do just fine for a few days with those pantry staples alone, but if you have time to get to the grocery store before the big storm hits, it’s nice to have these on hand:Fresh breadEggsFresh fruit and vegetablesIngredients for cookies or some other baking project to keep the house warm and cozy.𝗪𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗥 𝗘𝗠𝗘𝗥𝗚𝗘𝗡𝗖𝗬 𝗘𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗜𝗔𝗟𝗦Staying safe throughout a winter weather event involves more than filling your belly. As long as you’re stocking up on things, make sure your emergency preparedness kit is topped off with the following:FlashlightsBatteriesBattery operated radioBack-up energy sources like portable power banks and solar chargersCan openerFirst aid kitThermal emergency blankets𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗘𝗥 𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗕𝗔𝗦𝗘𝗦Some members of your household may have unique needs, so make sure they’re factored into your shopping list as well:At least a one-week supply of prescription medication and medical suppliesPet food and medicineBaby food and formulaDiapers𝗚𝗘𝗧 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗𝗬 𝗙𝗢𝗥 𝗚𝗥𝗜𝗟𝗟𝗜𝗡𝗚No gas stove? No problem, if you have an outdoor grill. Just be sure to get necessities like charcoal, matches, newspapers, and lighter fluid, or a full tank of propane for a gas grill. You can also use a camping stove if you have a supply of the appropriate fuel. A teakettle and French press will come in handy if you end up making your morning coffee by the heat of the fire.𝗠𝗔𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗔𝗜𝗡 𝗬𝗢𝗨𝗥 𝗚𝗘𝗡𝗘𝗥𝗔𝗧𝗢𝗥If you have an emergency backup generator, you’ll want to top off your supply of fuel and replace old fuel that may be stale. Make sure the generator is up to date on maintenance like oil changes, filters, and spark plugs, and ensure that any extension cords you’re using are undamaged and rated for generator use. If you want to run your generator through your main electrical panel but haven’t had an electrician install a transfer switch, get this service done before you have a winter storm bearing down.𝗜𝗖𝗘 𝗗𝗢𝗪𝗡 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗜𝗖𝗘𝗕𝗢𝗫You can help your refrigerator and freezer maintain cold temperatures during a power outage by filling empty space with containers of water -- or better yet, ice. If outdoor temperatures are below freezing, you can freeze several large containers of water at once and keep them cycling in and out of your fridge and freezer, just in case.𝗧𝗢𝗣 𝗢𝗙𝗙 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗚𝗔𝗦 𝗧𝗔𝗡𝗞While you’re out gathering all these supplies, don’t forget to fill up your car’s gas tank. Winter storms could interrupt fuel deliveries in your area.This is snow joke, folks. We're looking at a wintry forecast for the weekend. Break out your sleds, and toboggans! Or if you prefer settle in with a cup of hot chocolate and watch from a cozy spot indoors.Plan to stay off the roads as a wintry mix moves in Saturday ahead of the main front. A mixture of rain, snow, and sleet is expected at the onset, with snow most likely across western NC. Snow showers may continue in the western NC mountains through Sunday night.When weather like this arrives, there's snow place like home!In all seriousness, prepare now to stay warm and safe. Ready your heating sources and a backup option in case we lose power.Maybe stock up on something other than bread and milk 🙂 Oh, and sign up for weather-related emergency alerts today: www.alerts.haywoodcountync.gov ...
