Pleasurable 70-degree days last week and mid-60's this week, with plenty of sunshine to spare... It's certainly not time to worry about harsh winter weather, right? Actually, according to state officials, that's exactly what we should be doing. Along with The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management (OEM), Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the National Weather Service (NWS), Governor Fallin declared November 14th as "Winter Preparedness Day".

The reality is that snow and ice aren't too far away, and if you recall those dangerous blizzards just a couple of years ago, you know how important it is to prepare. Among other things, winter weather preparation means learning area snow routes, winterizing your home, developing a family disaster plan for winter storms and making sure your car has emergency supplies such as blankets, a flashlight, jumper cables, first aid kit, scraper, and cell phone with extra batteries.
