Let it snow, but no ice storms please!

Old Man Winter descends upon the Northland! Word of a coming winter storm prompts thoughts about preparations and safety. Visit  http://www.noaa.gov/ to view the warnings for wintry conditions over the next couple of days. It’s a good time to brush up on winter safety both while travelling or in the event you become trapped at home during a winter storm. Arrowhead Cooperative works very hard to maintain power and restore weather related outages quickly. You’ll be more relaxed and comfortable in the case of an outage if you’ve taken a few preparation steps for warmth, food, water and hygiene. Here are a few resources providing safety tips, supply lists and reminders about how to be prepared for winter weather or storms that cause power outages.
