Winter Storm Preparedness: Tips for Thriving Off-Grid


| 11/4/2016 9:58:00 AM


Inevitably, the beautiful fall weather will end, and when it does, winter will take its place. After purchasing our beautiful 5 acres last fall, we were almost immediately hit with a massive storm. When I say massive, I mean 100-year windstorm type of weather. Yikes!

We learned fairly quickly and in the midst of it all, how we could be better prepared for the next storm. Hopefully through our experience, we can help you with your winter storm preparedness.
