Moving around the country with the military, I’ve seen bad weather in a lot of different areas. I’m always interested in how differently people in different parts of the country prepare for what’s considered bad weather there. For those of you who have to run to the store at the last-minute before a bad snow storm or severe temperatures, here’s a Last-Minute Snow or Freeze Shopping List to make your trip just a little easier.
Unless you’re exceptionally prepared all the time, you will one day be standing in a long line at the store stocking up on those must have items before a big storm. It’s happened to even the most prepared and organized among us. Don’t worry, just print out your copy of the Last-Minute Snow or Freeze Shopping List and you’ll be ready to run to the store and get everything you need.
