Get Ahead of the Next Storm

Nov 10, 2016 2:32 pm

California had a very wet October and our drought-stricken state gladly welcomed the rain with open arms. The influx of raindrops, cloudy skies and wind reminded us of how badly our state needs rainy days that we hadn’t seen in a while.

The winter-like weather also reminded us that Mother Nature has a few tricks up her sleeve and we should be ready for anything she throws our way. Perhaps you were caught off guard during the rain storms with clogged gutters, no umbrella, no emergency supply kit or unsure how to check road conditions. If that was the case, no need to panic – sunny days like today are good days to prepare your family, car, home and pets…and get ahead of the next storm.
