How Do You Prepare For A Blizzard?

  • Before A Blizzard

Check your emergency supplies. You’ll want to make sure that you have enough food, water and medicine to last at least three days if the power goes out. If there are children or elderly people in your household, make sure they have extra supplies too.

Check your car’s tires and fluids. These precautions can help keep you on the road during an ice storm (or prevent one from happening in the first place). If it does happen though—you know what to do!

Have a plan for where you will go if you can’t get home due to snow drifts or impassable roads. It’s best not to wait until after the event has begun before figuring this out—you’ll be able to prepare more effectively in advance by knowing exactly where everyone is going beforehand instead of scrambling around when things start getting bad outside!

  • What To Put On Icy Sidewalks

Traction Magic is a handy disposable canister that provides instant traction on snow and ice. It is free of salts and chlorides and works well on any surface, including new concrete and decking. It is granular in consistency and helps absorb the water and provide a grip by holding onto the ice or snow to create a non-slip surface. It remains on the ground for a long time and does not harm the environment.

  • During A Blizzard

Blizzards can create hazardous road conditions, which makes driving extremely dangerous during a blizzard. If you must travel, do so only if absolutely necessary and drive slowly. If you have to drive in these conditions, keep your car well-groomed (cleaned off of snow and ice) so that it is visible for other drivers on the road.

  • After A Blizzard

Do not use a generator indoors. Even if you’re careful, carbon monoxide can build up in your home without proper ventilation.

Don’t use candles or lanterns indoors during power outages because they can cause fires. If you must have light at night, use battery-powered flashlights instead of open flames like candles or kerosene lamps.

Consider staying with family or friends in case your home becomes inaccessible due to snow accumulation or flooding. You may also want to consider bringing pets inside where they will be warm and safe from any severe weather conditions that might occur outside (like thunderstorms).
