Winter Storm Help
Winter weather in Virginia can be very unpredictable. Though snow has not been on the forecast this year it will still prove to be beneficial to prepare your home, car and surrounding area for any impending storm. A few helpful tips for homeowners;
Salt pavement around your house: the city is pretty good with clearing the roads around your home, however any sidewalks and pathways are left up to the homeowner to clear. To make things easier on homeowners, once you are aware of any storm headed your way spread street salt on your driveway and walkway. Placing salt down prior to any snowstorm can reduce the ice that forms underneath piles of snow.
Keep a steady drip: With snow comes freezing and sometimes below freezing conditions leaving your pipes vulnerable and likely to freeze and in turn burst. Having a settle but steady drip of warm water flow through will help keep your pipes from freezing during these conditions.
Create a winter ready emergency kit: In an event of a snow storm the strength of it is always unpredictable. To keep you and your family safe, create and keep a winter ready emergency kit available. A few things to keep in the kit; bottled water, batteries, a functioning radio, different layers of clothing, blankets and non perishable food items.
