*Put a pair of big socks on over your shoes to walk on ice!! It works!!
*Fill your bathtub up with water so that if you lose power/water, you can use it to water animals and flush the toilet.
*Use oil lamps for light, they put off a bit of warmth too! But get batteries ready for flashlights too!
*You can bring in solar outdoor lights if you get desperate!!
*Get all your dishes and clothes/blankets washed up in case you need them all before electric comes back on.
*Be prepared to hang blankets in doorways to keep ONE room warm...and cuddle up!
*Charge up cell phones, laptops, and have a battery operated radio nearby.
*Wrap your water pipes that are near an outer wall with newspaper and duct tape. Leave your water drip a tiny bit, and open cabinet doors if your sink is on an exterior wall.
*Have food that is ready-to-eat, beef jerky, crackers, tuna, granola, etc...and plenty of drinking water.
*If you have to travel, fill your gas tank in case you get stranded. Pack extra clothes in case you need a hotel. Don't forget food, drinks, and a thermal blanket.
*STAY IN if at all possible!!
If you have ideas to add, I would LOVE to hear about them!!
