SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — Another in a series of storms will hit the Southland this week, with rain arriving as early as Sunday and intensifying Monday through Wednesday, forecasters said Saturday.

1. Remove The Snow Frequently

When a winter storm occurs, the most immediate maintenance needed is snow and ice removal. Even a few inches of snow accumulating outside your home can be inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst. A more severe winter storm can exacerbate the problem, making ice and snow removal even more critical.

Clearing snow from walkways and driveways is essential to prevent accidents and improve accessibility. Use a snow shovel, snow blower, or plow to clear the snow, and make sure to remove any ice or compacted snow that may have formed underneath. If you’re unable to clear the snow yourself, consider hiring a professional snow removal service.

Clear any snow or debris from your gutters to prevent water from backing up and causing damage.

4. Be Mindful Of Snow Disposal

When disposing of snow, be mindful of where you place it. Avoid blocking sidewalks, driveways, or roads, as this can create hazards for pedestrians and drivers. Do not throw snow onto neighboring properties or public property, as this can lead to legal and financial consequences

5. Use Ice Melt Products

Using ice melt products is a great way to speed up the snow melting process and prevent the formation of ice. Ice melt products can be used on walkways, driveways, and other surfaces to provide traction and improve safety.
