The excitement builds! Anticipating the first winter storm

The Reno Gazette Journal got out its pre-storm anticipation stories tonight. See A driver’s guide to chain controls, Storm: list of items every home needs, Seven-day forecast for Reno, and Top Sierra Nevada storms since 1950.

It looks like you don’t want to be in an RV on US 395 south of Reno starting Friday and on through Saturday, especially in the parts towards Bishop. The problem will be wind but a bit of snow may accumulate in areas.

You must have chains in your vehicle when you enter a designated chain control area when the sign is up saying “chains required”. If towing a trailer, make sure you have chains for it, too.

As for emergency supplies – check your RV inventory! The stuff, like food and water, that is perishable or can be damaged by cold should be in a handy spot in the house. The key is to make sure you can get by for a few days even if the electricity goes out or the pipes freeze.
