Benton and Washington Counties weathered the first real winter storm of the season with few problems to report.

Cold kit

John Luther, Washington County’s director of emergency services, said Northwest Arkansas residents should take the time to prepare a “go bag” or winter weather safety kit to place in their vehicles before another winter storm hits. He said the kits should include a blanket, gloves and a warm hat, along with a flashlight with fresh batteries. He said jerky or some other kind of snack food and water should also be included.
