Winter Survival Tips

December 7, 2010

Winter is upon us, whether we like it or not. Snow and ice are probably here to stay for the season so we all had better be prepared for the long winter ahead. Here are a few winter survival tips to get you through yet another Minnesota winter.

  1. Pack survival gear in your cars including extra blankets, sand bags, candles, granola bars, bottled water, and flashlights. Don’t forget to always bring a book too. You might be stuck in your car for a while and need something to read.
  2. Wear layers of clothing. This helps keep you warm. It also provides a place to carry your books with you – the thicker the book, the more insulation it provides.
  3. Don’t overdo it when shoveling snow. Always take plenty of rest breaks – you don’t have to go out until you finish the next chapter.
  4. Keep your cupboards stocked with food in case you can’t get to a grocery store. Always have a couple of extra books around too in case you can’t get to a library.
  5. Make sure you have plenty of candles in case the electricity goes out. Be careful when reading by candlelight: don’t burn the pages! Better yet, make sure to have extra batteries for your MP3 player so you can listen to your downloaded audio-books while you wait for the lights to come back on.
