The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington has issued a Winter Storm Warning for which is in effect from Monday, March 3, 2 a.m. – 4 p.m, 2014. Potential of snow accumulations of 5 – 9 inches.

We encourage you to stock up today on winter preparedness emergency supplies and other preparedness items, such as extra batteries in case of power outages, make sure your cell phones are charged and purchase a charger for your car if you don’t already have one. Purchase rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways. Sand also is helpful to improve traction. Make sure that snow shovels and other snow removal equipment are in a convenient place and ready to use if necessary.

Also, don’t forget your pets — bring pets/companion animals inside; move other animals to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water.

    Also, make sure you have a battery backup or generator for your sump pump–especially if your home is all-electric.

    Please stay safe and warm!
