The less frequently an area gets snow, the quicker people are to get crazy about preparing for a snowstorm. In Maryland, we always get to experience all four seasons. There have only been a couple years that I remember making it all the way to Spring without seeing a snowflake, but we still freak out and stock up on toilet paper, water bottles, and bread when The Weather Channel announces that frozen precipitation might be a possibility. And by we, I mean Maryland. I’ve never gone out to get anything more severe than a corn dog when I know the snow is coming.

I don’t know if you’re in a place that gets a lot of snow or not, but right now my front yard is covered in a white blanket that Bug doesn’t understand and I thought I’d share a list of things you might want to do when it snows.
