Preparing for the Next Storm

While the calendar says spring, it still looks very much like winter here in the Northeast.

Yesterday, the region was hit with the fourth nor'easter in less than a month, bringing more heavy wet snow and high winds. At my farm, my outdoor grounds crew worked tirelessly to ensure everything was prepared - all windows and doors were secured, all the animals were safely tucked away in their shelters, and all the equipment was ready for any cleanup process once the storm ended. It's very important to be well-prepared for any big storm system - additional tips include: knowing where all the flashlights are kept and making sure they are equipped with fresh batteries, stocking the first aid kit, and checking that all vehicles are filled with gas - a full tank will keep the fuel line from freezing.
