To prepare for a winter storm, start by replenishing enough non-perishable foods, such as canned soup and pasta, to last at least 3-4 days. Also, be sure to get extra diapers, formula, baby food and pet food if you have small children or pets. Then fill some containers with water or get bottled water from the store if your pipes freeze. You should also buy new batteries to put in the flashlights and consider getting a cordless mobile phone charger, since cordless home phones will not work when the power is out.
