By Pat Brogan

It's 'Winter Preparedness Week' and counties in the region are hoping you get ready, just in case.

It hasn't felt like winter, but it's expected to get cold this week and could remain that way for quite a while. In Arlington, the county is offering some tips to prepare you for snow, sleet and ice. You can sign up for emergency information through its 'Arlington Alert' system. Officials also ask you to make a plan, decide on a place to meet if you and your family can't make it home due to bad weather.

They also suggest making a kit supplied with things like food, water, a battery powered radio and first aid supplies.
