Boston is in for a walloping by snow, according to current forecasts, but you still have time to make a plan.

Minimize travel. Do what you can to avoid getting stuck on the roads.

If you need to be on the road, put a blanket and some disaster supplies in your car.

Staying home? Good move. Fill up the car gas tank to avoid freezing.

Bring in the pets. They’re water resistant, sure. But a wet coat and wind isn’t good for anyone.

Think you’re going to lose power? A generator is good, but not inside. Never inside.

Think you’re going to lose power? Drop the temp in the fridge and freezer – colder items stay fresher longer. Also? Power up the cell phone.
