What to Do When a Winter Storm is Heading Your Way

Winter storms are a part of life during this season. Whether you like it or not, they will come our way and you should do everything you can to prepare for them. There are some easy tricks to preparing for a winter storm in Parkersburg, WV. Use these tips the next time one is heading your way. 

Get Food and Water

This may seem like it is an obvious thing to do but you would be surprised by how many people forget to do this. Make sure there is plenty of food and water for each person in the home for a few days. Also, when buying food, be sure to choose some options that do not have to be cooked just in case you lose power. 

Get Salt

With winter storms come ice. The best way to naturally get rid of ice after a storm is by putting salt, sand, or cat litter on the pavement. You need to have this before the storm hits or you will be stranded without a way to get out until the ice melts on its own. Get enough for your driveway and any walkways around your home. You can put some out before the storm as well as after to help speed up the process. 

Even with properly preparing for a winter storm, there is nothing better than having a good home insurance policy. You never know what can happen during a storm and you should protect your investment. Whether you already have one and want to be sure you are properly covered or you are looking to purchase a policy for the first time, we can help you with the process. Be sure to contact Curtis Miller Insurance serving Parkersburg, WV, for some quotes so you can be better protected.
