    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Winter Storms: Be Safe

Tonight is supposed to yield the biggest snowfall of the year: about 6-12 inches for the Duluth area.  And we thought we weren’t going to get any snow!  haha.  Well, here are some stay safe reminders for everyone as we prepare for the white blanket on the way:

  1. Buy necessities early.  If you are going to need food, toiletries, or any other household goods, make sure you buy them now rather than wait until tomorrow.  Otherwise, navigating to the store may prove a little daunting.
  2. If you travel (which I don’t recommend…), remember to have blankets, food, and a safety kit with you in case of an emergency.  Also, keep your cell phone on and with you at all times.
  3. Get a shovel!  Or pull out the one you put away for the season.  I suggest keeping up with shoveling as much as you can throughout the course of the storm (that way it won’t be one giant shoveling job!).
  4. Make sure that you have enough supplies to heat your home or apartment if you live off campus.  Get wood for fireplaces, or make sure your oil/natural gas tanks have enough fuel for the duration of the storm.
  5. Cozy up!  It is probably the best bit of advice for you to hunker down and wait out the storm, if possible.  Sit at home, snuggle up on the couch with your pillow-sized bag of homework, and get cracking.  You can return to reality once the roads (and your doorway!) are clear.
  6. Light candles.  If for whatever reason there is a power outage, it is always helpful to have the old fashioned candles on hand.  You never know when they can come in handy.  Flashlights are a good resource, as well.
