How to Prepare for Bad Weather


Whether winter or summer, bad weather can strike at any time. So it's smart to prepare for bad weather in advance by preparing an emergency kit and stockpiling items you will need to stay safe. Here are a few ways that you can prepare yourself for bad weather.

  • Get a battery operated weather radio. It needs to be battery operated in case the electricity is out during bad weather. Make sure that you also have extra batteries. One great option is to get a solar powered weather radio. These run on the sun's rays with a backup battery supply as well.

  • If you live in an extremely cold area you should consider getting an emergency generator to be on the safe side. Buy it during the summer or fall because it will be cheaper and generators also sell out very quickly in the winter when it gets snowy.

  • Stockpile bottled water, prepackaged dry food and canned goods that can be stored for long periods of time. Some foods include granola bars, pop-tarts, dry milk, and pretty much anything that comes in a can. Always check the expiration dates to make sure they are safe to eat.

  • Don't forget to stock items in your car as well. You never know when you may be stranded in your car during bad weather so have the following items in your trunk to stay safe: granola bars, bottled water, a first aid kit and blanket.
