Winter Storm Harper is expected to pass through Indiana today, dropping between 5 and 8 inches of snow throughout Montgomery County. Those numbers are according to predictions from our news gathering partner, WTHR. 
What comes with and after the snow may be more dangerous, however. Wind gusts of at least 30-40 mph are excepted during the latter half of the storm Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning followed by a steep drop in temperature. WTHR says Sunday and Monday will be dangerously cold, with temperatures by Monday morning dropping below zero and wind chills nearing -30 Sunday into early Monday.
There are ways to stay safe and plan for a winter storm:
Make plans to move family members – especially those with special needs – to safe, alternative locations in the event of an extended power outage.
Gather warm blankets, sleeping bags and clothing layers to help keep household members warm.
Insulate rooms with blankets or other barrier materials over windows and doors.
Know how to determine if it is safe to travel and know where to go should the power go out. Identify a friend or family member’s house, or a nearby shelter.
Question of the Week:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has cited security concerns and asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union speech scheduled for Jan. 29, or deliver it in writing. Pelosi said the government shutdown is to blame, and of course Trump is to blame for the shutdown. Some in her own party have said this is no more than petty politics. What say you?
