Editorial: Be prepared for winter
Time again to be ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store for Western Wisconsin this winter.
Winter conditions can threaten people's safety. Winter storms are considered deceptive because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm, such as traffic accidents, exposure to the cold or carbon monoxide poisoning. Prepare by winterizing vehicles and homes, assemble a disaster kit and have a NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards or commercial radio with fresh batteries.
