EUGENE, Ore. -- On Feb. 24, heavy snow fell across Western Oregon, bringing 1 to 3 feet across most of the area.
Downed trees cut communities off from emergency services for days, and some were without power for weeks.
Now is the time to prepare for winter weather and possibly being stranded without power again. Generators can provide energy and keep you house warm. Water, non-perishable foods, blankets, and flashlights are all great items to have on hand if the weather turns.
