Your Family:

  • Shop early and shop smart. Definitely pick up hot chocolate with mini-marshmallows, but also make sure you have easy-to-eat foods on hand in case the power goes out.

  • Buy some “hot hands” or other hand and feet warmers.

  • Keep your cell phones and other devices charged in case of a power outage. 

  • Check in on family members outside your home to make sure they are okay. 

  • Have extra water on hand just in case. (Filling up a bathtub or some big pots works.)

  • Get blankets, fuzzy socks and fun layers ready in case the heat goes out. Mittens are warmer than gloves. Wear a hat to keep your whole body warmer. A warm neck helps too, so remember to wrap up in a scarf!

  • Co-sleep if the power goes out!  

  • Have flashlights, candles, and books on hand to read if the power goes out.

  • Heat up a blanket or towel in the dryer and snuggle up if you have power. Watch the flakes fall and talk about fun times in the snow.
