And if you truly want to be prepared for the storm, run out and purchase "Frederick" by Leo Lionni. Frederick will teach you all you need to know about coping with winter.
Mary Dixon Weidler writes in her review of this book :

"Frederick the field mouse has the heart of a poet, but how does that help his family prepare for the cold winter? Using his imagination, Frederick memorizes the best of the summer days, and then warms his family with those memories during the cold, gray winter."

my family LOVES that book!

This is the best winter in 14 years .
