As we all probably know the storm could hit the east coast with a vengance.
They are all ready expecting power outages on the coast and in land as there will be snow on the back side.
Just in case fill all your water barels or buckets that you can for your horses and other animals do the same for yourself. Be sure to leave an extra flashlight with fresh batteries in your barn so you will have it if you need it.
Tie your outside hay feeders down if you can.
Make sure if you have generators for house or barn you have xtra gas, put water bottles in your freezer to put into coolers you can drink them as they thaw and they will help keep food that needs to be kept cold, cold.
FILL YOUR BATHTUBS WITH WATER. as full as you can get them. You can use this water to flush toilets and wash up with. Make sure all your electronics including cellphones are all fully charged and you know where your car charger for your phone is at. You can always use your vehicle to charge your phone. If your kids have DS game players or Ipads or Ipods get them fully charged.
If you only have one generator if you have to you can alternate it between your fridge and freezer.
Have an evacuation plan for humans and animals in place.
Thoose that get snow if you loose power use a stick with a ribon on it stuck in a snow bank put your cold stuff in a cooler and burry it in the snow.
