The inclement weather has made me think of being prepared for bad weather. Make sure that you have a radio that will work on batteries or one that you can wind up.
Also, have an alarm clock that runs on batteries will also help you just in case the power goes out. Pay attention to the weather forecast, even travel on public transportation may take a lot longer or may be disrupted.
Food? If the power goes out, don’t open the refrigerator, the food that is in there will stay cool for a few hours. You still need to eat right? When the microwave doesn’t work because the power is out, make sure you have some shelf stable food that doesn’t need to be heated such as granola bars.
Pouches of precooked food that can be heated in the microwave or in boiling water may be eaten at room temperature. Having a couple of those would be good just in case the power is off.
Have candles but remember don’t leave them unattended in a room.
Keep your cell phone charged so that when the power does go out you would still be able to have an open line of communication.
