Don't attempt to drive in significant snow. If you absolutely must, make sure you have close to a full tank of gas. Behind the storm system, cold weather will sweep in. If you're stuck or stranded, you'll need to keep warm using your heater, which requires gasoline use.

Prepare now- travel in the next 24-48 hours will become virtually impossible according to the National Weather Service and other government organizations. It appears schools will be closed.

What's the underlying theme here? BE PREPARED. Some gasoline stations may run low on supply or even have their supply exhausted temporarily as replenishment moves too slowly to keep up. My advice? Get out the snowshoes (does anyone even know that these are anymore?), bundle up, and have fun!
