This means there is a high likelihood that your simple grocery store run or morning commute could be impacted by winter weather at least once. From snow to sleet to freezing rain or ice, winter weather yields numerous types of precipitation that all pose hazards and difficulties on the roadways. It is a good place to take shelter, especially during a winter storm. • Notify the authorities with your cellphone and pinpoint your location with GPS either on your cellphone or with navigation services in your car. • If you don’t have any cellphone service to contact the authorities, then it is important to stay put.
