I'm in Scotland and we get really rough winters at times. Yet the people and our leaders never seem prepared! Are you vigilant in the cold weather? Do you prepare? Or do you leave it to the fates?

My generator has been tested this week. I have firewood to heat, and cook with. I have a month worth of frozen groceries. I am ready for winter.<br />

Ice storms, with damaged power distribution, cause most of the winter emergencies, in my area.

It has been very warm here, it always is. So warm people from all over the country come to spend their winters here. The only real preparations needed are to cautious about the elderly who come to visit and the way they drive.

Nah it won't get below freezing more than a few weeks. Sometimes we'll have ice hanging around making the roads slick so it's good if you have some vacation time built up because people can't drive around here if there's a thinnest bit of ice on the roads.

We live in the Midwestern part of the US. We can have pretty severe winters. We make sure our home is as "tight" as possible .. no cold air leaks. We protect any outdoor plants that are sensitive. Pull out the warm clothes, winterize the car, find the old snow blower and shovels and sit tight.
