It's beginning to look a lot like winter! Snow is in the forecast and there are some reports and models that indicate portions of New York State may get as much as 58 inches of snow.

The bread, eggs, and milk will be flying off the shelves soon as people start to "panic" buy the things considered essential for families. Be ready for more people in the grocery stores this weekend.

Regardless of the forecast or what the reality is of the weather, it is best to be prepared at the house and in your car. As we saw last year, the snow can not only be a headache for travel, it can make it tough for first responders to do their jobs.

There are a few things besides bread, eggs, and milk that you can buy or have ready to deal with the snow. It is also a good time to remember to help out your neighbors and check on those with health issues or are older.
