Yet more snow likely on the 13th

See also

There is yet another winter storm warning for the area. The Northampton and Springfield areas are expecting between 6 and 10 inches of snow between 8am Thursday, when the warning begins, and 8am Friday when the warning ends. National Grid, the electric service provider for most of the area, has already issued a warning to its customers with supportive equipment. This means that the company considers power failures a likelihood. As of 4pm today, paratransit is canceled for tomorrow.

Therefore, take advantage of this beautiful pre-storm afternoon to get to the grocery store and pharmacy, as needed. Stock up on batteries and candles. Don’t forget pet food. Make sure to purchase an electricity free activity or two, so a power failure won’t leave you bored.

During the storm, make sure you have a back up plan in case your assistant can’t get to you. See if neighbors wouldn’t mind helping you out in an emergency. By the same token, check on others around you.

In terms of transportation, it may be hard for you get out tomorrow. Many businesses will close and events will be closed if the snow is as bad as foretasted. Call ahead before venturing into the outdoors. Stay safe and take care of each other. Remember, whatever this storm drops will simply add to the area mounting snow accumulation, making already existing problems with access and other difficulties worse.
