Snow: How to Prepare, Make the Most of It and Not Go Stir-Crazy!


Snow is inevitable during the wintertime in Virginia, and while it poses its fair share of challenges, it's also quite beautiful and enjoyable if you make the right preparations. Here's how to prepare for the snow and learn to love it this winter.

  • The Julian at Fair Lakes building has a parking garage, so shovels aren't always necessary. However, it is important to have an ice scraper for those particularly cold days.
  • If you hear that a snowstorm is coming, it's always smart to prepare by hitting the grocery store and stocking up on the necessities. This way, you won't have to endanger yourself by driving on slippery roads if a storm strikes.
  • The building is right near a Dick's Sporting Goods and a Kohl's, so it's easy to invest in some protective snow boots and other clothing. If you'd like to avoid slipping, falling or risking frostbite, things like gloves and boots are essential.
  • Finally, don't forget to get outside and enjoy the snow! Build an igloo, make a snow angel or even have a snowball fight. As long as you're bundled up, there's no reason you can't have a fun day outdoors in the winter weather.
