Have you ever been caught in a snowstorm that knocked out all of the power in your home? I have lived through many of these and learned the hard way that you need to be prepared at all times. When you live in cold climates as soon as winter rolls around it is time to buy the right supplies.

There are certain items that need to be kept inside of the car and inside of the home. In your car you should always keep a pair of gloves, boots, socks, blankets, and a first aid kit. These will take care of you if you should swerve off the road and your car gets stuck.

No matter what shoes you are wearing you will be able to switch them out with something warmer and thicker. This will help you walk to you reach a place that can help you. You need to make sure that there are enough supplies for every person in the family.

At the home you need more supplies than this. You need to keep a first aid kit, lots of blankets, pillows, kerosene lamps, kerosene portable heaters, canned food, and water. If you have a fireplace then you should also have lighter fluid, logs, and newspaper. This will allow you to light a fire.

With these supplies you will have food and water that do not need to be cooked so that you will not be starving for anything. With the kerosene lamps or eve flashlights you can find your way around your home. The kerosene heater will help to keep you and your family warm at night though you should not use it for long periods of time. The kerosene is not something that you should breathe in for long periods of time. That is why you need lots of blankets to keep everyone warm.
