Snow? We just make sure we have flashlights, and lots of food and water and any other necessities on hand. All iPads and computers charged so we can watch our fav movies if the power goes out. Cellphones charged as well.

 make sure you have candles and enough food. also make sure you have back up heat in case the power goes out.

We are just getting a light dusting near us but we always stock up on food and ice melt and make sure we have shovels that are good

depends on the storm.  I have a wood burning fireplace (heat/cooking), camping gear to cook with if needed, plenty of firewood which can be brought in to stay dry if needed, plenty of blankets, a stock pile of things like granola bars, ravioli, canned soup, ramen, beans, etc,  I also have plenty of flashlights and batteries, bottled water, first aid kids, advil, any meds needed for the kids or us....etc

food, water, blankets (in case electricity goes out), and make sure our errands are already run and we won't have to go out.

A snow storm? 

We live in CO and I haven't heard anything about it. But we don't get a lot of huge storms here that need major prep for. If we get a larger than average snow storm we are always prepared with a 4 wheel (or all wheel) drive, lots of canned foods, bottled water, etc, etc.
