Preparing for an Ice Storm
A survey of the Durham NC Second Ward after the ice storm of December 2002 revealed what preparation the people said they missed most:
Cleaning the house before the storm
Catching up on laundry and sheets before the storm
Having dishes washed before the storm
Having batteries for their battery-powered equipment
For those on well-water, who lost water as well as power, having more disposables such as paper plates.
