In case you have not heard there is a blizzard happening in New England right now. Today my mom did some last minute shopping for food and water, while my dad filled up gas cans. I also left for work an extra hour early because I needed to get gas in my car. Although with snow comes a huge clean up getting snowed in and hunkering down does have its perks. For example, getting to sleep in, doing nothing for a day, and eating all the yummy junk food.
The biggest downside to having a snow storm like this is losing power. The main reason for all the gas that my dad got was in order to make sure that we have enough to power the generator. In case of storms like this I would definitely recommend getting a generator because it keeps the power going, and that keeps the hot water for showers going. A generator may be loud, but it is definitely a good thing to keep in the house in case of bad weather or just a power outage over all. If you do have a generator please make sure that it is properly ventilated and read the instructions on how to start it or call a help line. Also, when you are out looking for a generator ask for suggestions on which one to get. As long as you have a safe place to put the generator, then look into stores for a good one.
So with that being said I won’t be going anywhere for a day or two due to the mass amount of snow that Connecticut, as well as the rest of the northeast, is set to get. By the way in the case of a storm please make sure you have water, food, batteries, flashlight, etc. You really don’t realize how much you depend on something until it is gone for a couple of days.
