  • Get your emergency kit ready, the power could go out!
  • Make snow ice cream!
  • Read more!

It snowed last night!

If you woke up this morning to a lot of snow, you’re not alone. Look at the mountains around you, and they’re pretty white right now! But, that’s not all. 

The National Weather Service is predicting a lot more snow in the next couple of days. 

Add it all up, and the Prescott area should get somewhere between 13 - 24 inches between now and Tuesday. Our area is under a winter snow warning -  which the National Weather Service in Flagstaff explained, 

So, you might want to do a quick survey now, and if you need anything, you’d better get it soon. Otherwise, you may be hunkered in for a while. 

Emergency Kit

Of course, in our area, you have a good chance of experiencing a power outage, as the heavy snow weighs down the lines. 

Emergency supplies in case of power outage: 

  • Flashlights charged up, or extra batteries on hand.
  • Phone chargers at full power (By the way, a lot of external phone chargers have built-in flashlights.)
  • Candles and matches
  • Food that does not need to be cooked
  • Extra water
  • First aid kit
  • Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medications

When Life gives you snow, make snow ice cream!

Here’s a couple of videos on how to make snow ice cream:

Note: You can use regular milk, but the texture might not be exactly the same.
