GET YOUR ENGINES GOING: WINTER STORM

PLEASE BE SAFE AND KEEP WARM.

As you know there will be at least 20 inches of snow in the Chicago Area. Go to the FEMA.gov for information on “what to have” at home. And this are the “warning” meanings that we see all the time at the tv or hear at the radio:

“Winter Warnings”
As the winter weather season approaches, do you know what the various weather warnings and advisories mean?
WINTER STORM WATCH indicates that winter weather may affect your area.
WINTER STORM WARNING indicates that severe winter weather conditions are definitely on the way.
BLIZZARD WARNING indicates that snow and strong winds of at least 35 miles per hour combined will produce blinding
snow, near-zero visibility, deep drifts and life-threatening wind chill.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY indicates winter weather conditions, with snowfall of between 3 to 6 inches, are
expected to cause significant inconveniences and may be hazardous, especially to motorists.
Knowing what these terms mean will help you better protect yourself and loved ones.

have a safe storm!
