For those of you who live in the North, this post may be a bit funny. But to us Southerners, this “polar vortex” has created a Winter Storm that has closed roads, businesses and schools for the past 2 days. So, what actually constitutes a winter storm here in New Orleans? Well, it’s been right about 32 degrees and we have had about 1/2″ accumulation of ice! It’s the Sneauxpacolypse!
All of the local news stations are warning that ice on tree branches could cause them to snap and take down our power lines. I actually got a text from our energy company telling us to prepare to be without power for 3-5 days! Yikes. Fortunately, as a Rayovac Power Blogger, I have my trusty box of batteries to the rescue!
We have replaced batteries in our flashlights and radio and have started charging up all of the Rayovac Rechargeables in order to prepare for the worst. No darkness for this family! And to make sure we can stay in touch with family and friends, I have my Rayovac Portable Power ready to go in case my cell phone or iPad needs a boost. Of course, I have firewood, hot chocolate and a King Cake, too (the real essentials).
How do you prepare for a winter storm?
