Crippling Weather (Updated 6pm ET 2.7.13)

I’ve read a lot of news articles about the upcoming winter storm in the northeast. The majority of these articles use the adjective crippling in anticipation of the storm’s wrath. So, we’re here with help from our Weather Channel buddy Jim Cantore to make sure you’re getting ready.

Not in the Northeast? You’ve probably got friends and family there – it’s a very dense area of the country. Send them a quick email, text, or phone call to make sure they’ve taken some steps to prepare.

You can also follow the conversation about the storm on Twitter
