For starters, layer up! It’s gonna be chilly. Even my dog wears a shirt to go outside (and I do not put my dogs in clothes unless necessary). Being prepared is the only way to do it here. If you’re stuck, you’re not going anywhere for a while. That goes for power outages too. If you are here in the winter, bless your soul, and make sure you have plenty of blankets, socks, and snacks before the weather starts! Stock up when you’re off cape or online. Whatever you think you need – get the best version of it.
The snow falls horizontally, there is bone chilling winds, and often power outages that last way too long. This may sound familiar to a lot of people, but on cape cod your resources to getting what you need can be limited. So heres how to deal with it all…
If you are staying by the water make sure to park in a spot where the sun will hit when it comes out. And try to park facing the wind, not perpendicular.
People stink at driving in weather. It could be cold and even a little rainy and everyone is going 15 mph. There are always those people that are zooming by – don’t be that person, but if you’re going too slow people will make sure you know.
Avoid the bridges when it’s really windy and slippery!
Avoid the grocery store last minute if you can. It’s better to go somewhere smaller than a huge grocery store that will be packed.
I don’t have too many tips for this, but lastly don’t be the idiot who tries to go out in the bad weather. I can assure you that everyone will think twice about opening their store or going to work. Call ahead.
