Major Snow Event and your Neighbors

Published by at 9:42 am under Liveaboard Topics

Good morning, neighbors…as you know, we have a major snow event coming this weekend and sticking around through next week. The accumulation predictions have been from 7-12 inches. As we are all aware, but it doesn’t hurt to be reminded of: Be careful walking the docks, and don’t be afraid to ask your neighbors for help. Check in on those that you don’t see regularly or have limited mobility.  Don’t drive if you don’t have to. Use common sense with your space heaters and don’t use extension cords with them! Shut off your water heater breaker when running the electric heaters. Make sure CO and smoke detectors batteries are in good shape. Stay warm and dry.

You have today and tomorrow morning to make final preparations.
• Make sure you have enough food to last the week+
• Top off your water tanks while the hoses are defrosted
• Top off your diesel
• Check/clean your space heaters
• Add extra dock lines and secure your tarps for the possible high winds that are predicted again
• When it warms up and starts to melt, make sure your scuppers are clear to drain
• Top off your car gas tank in case you get stuck out driving, and have water, snacks, blankets and boots in the car
