In my 11-4-12 blog, I talked extensively about preparing a food checklist in case of any natural disaster coming towards us. Well, folks, it looks like a Nor’Easter has finally arrived in my neck of the woods and 2 ft of snow is expected after it leaves this Sunday.
A Nor’Easter is basically 2 winter storms meeting each other at a certain point. 1 storm arrives in an eastward direction and the other from the northern point and going down south.
Since I live in Atlantic Canada, my region is already included with the New England portion of the United States(i.e., Massachusetts,Maine,New Hampshire,Vermont,Rhode Island,Connecticut). and the U.S. eastern seaboard(New York,New Jersey and parts of eastern Pennsylvania).
As of now, I heard that Boston,Massachusetts will get the brunt of this storm and expected to get about 3 ft of snow. It’spractically now getting 3 inches of snow per hour.
I couldn’t help but think of the Superstorm Sandy victims along the New York and New Jersey areas,trying to pick up the pieces from Sandy and now dealing with this nasty blizzard. I hope they’ll pull through this as well.
Going back to the food checklist, just read my 11-4-12 blog for reference purposes. Get ready your emergency kit of flashlight,lamps,first-aid kit,generators,etc. in case of power outages caused by the snowstorm.
Wear adequate winter clothing to keep you warm.
Listen to the meteorologist’s latest weather updates about this Nor’Easter.
Listen too when your local authorities tell you to stay indoors and not venture out into the storm.This is not the time to be brave and get killed in the process.
This is going to be the 1st blizzard of 2013 and reportedly a historic one as well.
It pays to be prepared for anything!
