Remember KY in late January? A little bread and milk from the grocery will not help you if we lose power due to ice. You should have plans in place at minimum for alternate heating and cooking options, a stocked pantry and a manual can opener. Alternate sources for light - be careful if you use candles. Make sure cell phone batteries are charged. Gas tanks on your car should be full. Check on elderly neighbors and relatives to see if they need any assistance. Stay off the roads if at all possible before driving becomes hazardous.
