It’s on all of our minds. How will this winter storm compare to the one in February 2021? No two events are alike. This one won’t be as bad in many ways, but we expect more ice which means more treacherous road conditions. The icing may cause localized power outages even if energy demand isn’t as high. It is still an event everyone should do their best to prepare for by changing travel plans, stocking up on essential supplies, ensuring cell phone batteries are charged and helping vulnerable friends and relatives.
