I usually keep a lot of different things on hand in case of emergency weather conditions hit us unaware. Where I live, it has happened that due to snow the whole roads been closed for almost a week! If I know a storm is coming I will usually stock up on eggs, bread and sandwich meat. I keep a stock of canned goods. I keep extra bread, milk, butter (in the freezer), as well as portions of meat that will thaw quickly. If the weathers bad, and I don't have electricity, I have a propane gas grill that I can make any kind of food on, so I'm pretty well set for emergencies of any kind.

I live in an area where we've had nor'easters, ice storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, you name it. When it comes to preparing for storms I always buy canned goods that keep well and can be prepared easily, bottled water, emergency candles, batteries for radio/flashlights and have a camp stove to heat up food, etc.
