Be Prepared: How To Stay Connected In A Storm

“Be prepared.” It’s good advice for the Boy Scouts, and it’s good advice for those who use mobile technology. We were just hit by a nasty snow storm up here in Boston, and as I sat at home basking in the luxury of a surprise snow day, I saw lots of updates from friends who’d lost power in the nor’easter. It got me thinking: what kind of blizzard tech prep should everyone be prepared for when a big one’s on the horizon? From charging batteries to downloading documents, these are the five biggest tips I’ve picked up over years of losing my lights to snowstorms.
