The Illinois Emergency Management Agency says don’t wait for winter to be prepared for winter—especially when you’re on the road. Certain parts of Illinois saw some snow showers and wind last week and conditions on the road can deteriorate in a hurry, even in November says IEMA’s Patti Thompson.
Thompson advise to have an emergency kit for your home as well. Tips are available at “ready.illinois.gov.”
The first official day of winter is December 21st.
