Even though we haven't seen much in the way of snow so far, this doesn't mean we're going to stay this way for long. As with all winters, the snow is sure to be on its way.  But while we wait, take advantage of the situation and make sure you are prepared when the snow does come.  Make sure you have a safety kit packed in your car, along with an ice scraper and other winter essentials. If you have any last minute winterization projects for your house or camp, now would be the time to get them done. Don't let the snow catch you off guard!
