Riding The Storm Out Tips to help you weather the worst


W Don't •


Bring grills or generators inside. Running them indoors could be a deadly mistake. Both emit carbon monoxide that could poison you in a confined space.


• Venture out into the weather without letting someone know where you're going. If you get stuck, a friend or family member can alert authorities if you can't.





Open your refrigerator or freezer. If you lose power, keeping their doors closed will help foods stay cold longer.





Stand under trees or power lines if they're coated in ice. Branches or power lines weighted with ice could kill you if they fall. It's not worth the Instagram photo.


• Go near downed power lines, attempt to move them, or drive around them. Report the siutation to Kay Electric immediately at 800-535-1079 or call 911.

hen an ice or snow storm causes power outages, preparation is key to staying safe and comfortable. Below is a checklist of important items to remember before, during and after the storm.


Do •


Begin storm preparations as soon as possible. Stock up on flashlight batteries, bottled water, snacks and other foods that don’t require cooking. Keep a battery operated AM-FM radio handy for news. If you take prescription medications, make sure you have an ample supply on hand. Remember, even if you're unsure of the storm’s path, go ahead and prepare anyway. At worst, you'll be stocked up and ready for the next big weather event.


60 Ritz Crackers, crushed 1 stick oleo, melted ½ cup sugar 1 can Eagle brand milk 8 oz. Cool Whip 1 6 oz. can orange juice 2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained


DIRECTIONS


Mix together the Ritz crackers, oleo and sugar, and press into 9x12-inch pan. Save ½ cup crackers to sprinkle on top.


Mix together milk, Cool Whip, orange juice and madarin oranges.


Spread over crust and sprinkle remaining cracker crumbs on top. Chill.





Leave your phone plugged into the wall, especially if there's a possibility of power outages. If the power goes out, you're guaranteed to have maximum battery life. Also, remember to switch your phone to Airplane Mode. If you're not expecting a call and don't need to be connected to the Internet, it will preserve your phone's battery for much longer. #1221001
