It is the season for power outages. Prepare now for a long winter and stock up with flashlights and battery-powered items — please, though, be very careful with candles. As we move into the next season at Tahoe, it is always good to be ready with your vehicle too. Be sure you have all your chains, etc. in the vehicle as winter is just around the corner.
