    The race for necessities like bread, milk, and toilet paper is underway because another blast of cold air, snow and a wintry mix is heading towards the triangle. The sleet and freezing rain could affect your commute to Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh.

    Are you Prepared for wintry weather?

    -Stock up on an emergency supply of food and water prior to the onset of a winter storm. Ie… canned meats, peanut butter and other non-perishables.

    -Have a sufficient supply of heating fuel(including firewood).

    -Keep a flashlight on hand, a battery-powered radio, extra batteries and first aid kit.

    -Be careful when using emergency heating equipment. A wood burning stove, fireplace or space heater may be your only single room heat source should you lose your primary heating source.

    -Always safely operate portable generators outdoors in a well ventilated area.

    -Prevent water pipes from freezing by wrapping them in insulation or newspaper covered with plastic. When the weather is severely cold, let each faucet drip a bit to avoid freezing.

    -Do not cook or heat your home using a charcoal grill, gas grill or camp stove inside of your house. Deadly carbon monoxide fumes may drift into your home. Always use the above mentioned outside.
