A Winter Storm named Jonas
I'm sure by now you're aware that a major winter storm, Jonas, is about to descend upon DC, MD, VA (DMV) and other surrounding states. Typically we (DMVers) joke about snowstorms hitting the Nation's Capital and we have a tendency to panic at the last minute and stock up on food items. However, there are other essential items and information necessary for riding out a storm safely. So let's prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.
This storm has the potential to be a massive record breaking snowfall. There's still time to get your water, flashlights, batteries, non perishable foods to last approximately 3 days, refill medication to last about 7days, fill gas tanks, etc.
The following are tips from the Red Cross to help you navigate and be safe during the storm.
