Winter is coming.

Sure, it's a line from "Game of Thrones," but it's also the truth if you're living in New England. Doesn't it feel like there are more winter months up this way, too?

You should be getting ready for the first snowstorm so you're all set by the time it finally hits. And here's a few items you should make sure you have before then.

A snow thrower is essential with the amount of snow we get up north here. Piles and piles of it for sure, and this snow thrower can move 500 pounds of snow per minute. You'll have that driveway cleared in no time.

And of course, having a handy shovel is helpful, too. This one will be able to push that white powder right out of the way.

Make sure you have a snow brush and ice scraper. If you're out and about, you're gonna want to make sure you clean off your car and get that ice build-up off so you can go out and about.

When it snows, you're gonna want to stay cozy and warm, and a nice throw blanket will do just that. So you can sit back and relax while the snow all comes down.

In case all that snow causes a power outage, you better make sure you've got a flashlight or two handy. That way you'll still be able to see what's going on and where to get all your essentials as you hunker down.
