Rayovac and Severe Weather Safety

We are huge Rayovac Fand and Weather Fans here!  We have some Weather Dreams in the House!  Seriously, it is a fun little hobby of ours. "What's the weather?" "Is it going to snow?" "Is it going to rain?" "What's the temperature?" ….  I know my sweet and savvy Boulder Mountain Man loves the weather and has taught me so much about weather.  Like it changes and can be predictable.  Sort of.  And beautiful all at once.  With Rayovac, we're talking about Severe Weather Safety. 

Realistically, coming from New Orleans, we had rain and humidity and clouds.  Done.  Okay, I exaggerate, I just did not grow up with weather on my radar.  Maybe a good thing because I love a day, rain or shine.  

Well, it may have started for our boys when they were two weeks old and our small town had a serious tornado.  It was really intense.  We had to seek shelter - quickly.  Thankfully, my father-in-love was able to help me carry the babies since I was in a bit of pain from childbirth. :)  Nonetheless, two blocks from us, a roof blew off of our town's best BBQ.  Whew, we were, and still are, SO very thankful all was well.

So, severe weather safety is an important topic with spring around the corner, let's talk about the importance of being prepared for a weather emergency situation.

Well, guess what, April and May are Toronado Season.  And June starts Hurricane Season.  And this is on top of the usual Thunderstorms.  We have a 50% chance of Thunderstorms this week.  Add wind and you could be out of power. 

So along with Rayovac, we wanted to share these helpful tips for Severe Weather Safety from the Rayovac Storm Preparedness site about Tornado Season since she is just around the corner.

1) Tornadoes

Tornadoes can appear suddenly and strike randomly, so be alert during times of severe weather.

What To Do:
  • Be prepared, as tornadoes can form at any time of year. Peak tornado season in the southern states is March through May. In the northern states, it is late spring through early summer. Tornadoes occur in every state in the country.
  • Seek shelter in the lowest level of your home (basement or storm cellar). No basement? Go to an inner hallway, a smaller inner room, or a closet.
  • Keep away from all windows.
  • Make sure you have a battery-powered radio nearby.
  • Cushion yourself with a mattress, but do not use one to cover yourself.
  • Cover yoru head and eyes with a blanket or jacket to protect yourself from flying debris and broken glass. (see the Rayovac Storm Preparedness site for more information)
2)  Set aside an Severe Weather Safety Emergency Kit area on each level of your home.  Then, should the occasion arise, everyone knows where the supplies are located. 

3) Remember Car Weather Emergencies.  If anyone were to get stranded and there is a rain or weather storm, a good Rayovac Flashlight would be so helpful.
