Prepare for Winter Storms with a Full Tank

With winter quickly approaching, it's time to be prepared for the weather that comes along with it. To make getting through the winter stress-free, there are some things you can do to help ease the pain.

For starters keeping your cars gas tank full for the most part is a great idea. This simple thing seems like nothing major but can help tremendously in the event of bad weather. This can prevent you from having to plan a run by the gas station during an evacuation. You will be ready to pack the car and head out without worrying about finding gas to make it somewhere safe.

Another thing to keep in mind is keeping a few gallons of gas on hand (in appropriate containers of course!). During dangerous ice storms, homes can be run on generators. Generators are powered by gas. Always have a safety plan ready. Even if this includes finding a neighbor that owns a generator that will share the neighborly love.
