Holiday leftovers: They’re delicious, but remember these safety tips
As the holidays draw to a close, it’s time to think about 2022

Are you ready for winter storms?

In the Seattle area, we mostly have rain storms. However, Saturday – Christmas Day – it started snowing. It snowed and stopped, snowed and stopped, and on and on.

Monday, it looked like this:

Snow in Rita's Yard 12-26-21

My house is warm and the only problem would be if the power goes out. I’m working on getting my clothes ready in case I need to go to a motel.

Here’s information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on what you need to do on how to be ready for winter weather:

How to Prepare for Winter Storms

I’m prepared with:

  • Warm clothes to wear when I need to go outside.
  • New snow tires for winter weather.
  • Antifreeze in my car recently checked for winter weather.
  • Full tank of gas.
  • An emergency kit in the car.
  • A new smoke detector just installed.
  • Two weeks’ supply of food on hand.

Wish me luck. The weather is expected to warm up and begin melting the snow on Thursday.

If you’re not prepared for winter storms, now is the time to do it.
