Snow, wind and hydrants

Here we go- the first warned winter storm of 2018. Snow and high winds and record cold temperatures. Are you prepared?

And we’re not talking milk, bread and eggs here. Do you have working flashlights, charged phones and spare batteries, and secondary sources of safe heat if necessary? Have a safe place for a generator far enough away from the home? Do you have a plan for any outside pets?

And of course, don’t forget about hydrants. They’re out there all the time, waiting. Be kind and make sure your local hydrants are clear and visible.

We’ll be ready. We’ll also be passing along any important information as the storm unfolds. Stay safe.
