Stay indoors; there is nothing that beats staying doors if there is a blizzard. If you are caught outdoors and need to take temporary shelter then avoid any kind of strenuous activity. This will help conserve your energy levels if the blizzard refuses to cease.

Wear multiple layers of clothing. The outer layers must tightly wrap your body. It is imperative that you wear woolen headgear as most of the heat escapes from the head. If you have to travel then try not to travel alone. Do not rely on phones in case you are on the road or even at home because blizzards have a tendency to wreck phone lines.

Carry matchboxes and torches but do not burn anything inside a vehicle. A fire burns because of the presence of oxygen. You will end up using the oxygen within the vehicle. Try to park in a place so that the car is sheltered from one side. This will enable you to keep at least one window open.

Well, you should most likely stay indoors, and make sure you stay warm, so you do not freeze to death. During blizzards, tempatures decrease by a lot.
Next, don't rely on cellphones or regular phones, power lines will have been knocked down, and unusable. You should really have another way to contact other people without the use of phones.
If you are outside, you need to be able to have a fire, so bring match boxes, lots, and wood too, just so you can light the fire and stay warm during this blizzard.
Have blankets, so you, again, do not freeze to death, if you do not have proper gear on to keep you're body temperature in the right degrease.
And lastly, you should positively have food, in times of blizzards, people can starve to death, in these nasty storms. Don't rely on things that must be cooked, bring a can opener too, for canned food.
You should also have a medical kit, because just incase you get hurt or injured, you need to heal and or cover that wound, because you will likely get infected and die. Just incase

Well, in a blizzard I would stay indoors with flashlights and blankets.
If I was stuck outdoors, I would have to find shelter like a cave or somewhere where the winds aren't as strong. I would cover up every exposed part of my body. For example, my head. That is the most important spot because most of your body heat escapes from there. Be sure to have extra food/water, eating will give you energy to stay warm.
In case you are on the road and your car breaks down, don't even think about leaving the car because that increases your chance of frostbite/hypothermia. Keep extra blankets and bottles of water in your trunk or back seat.

The term blizzard defines a phenomenon in which very strong wind blows and is combined with snow. You can define a strong wind as blizzard when the wind is blowing at 35 mph or more and the visibility during it is one fourth of a mile or even less.

If we talk of the precautions that needs to be taken during blizzard, the first thing that needs to be suggested is that you should head directly towards your home and to find the number of your house, you should take precaution even earlier as in most of the cities you have the option of painting the number of your home in the curb style and you can find it easily. When you are inside your home you should make sure that every member of your home should have a blanket of theirs and other warm cloths to cover themselves.

Usually it happens that the city authorities issue the warning of blizzard much earlier and when they warn you, you should collect food for at least seventy-two hours so that there would be no problem of starvation to your family members and you. So take precaution and be safe during a blizzard.

There are a lot of things you need to be aware of during a blizzard. First of all you need to prepare for power outages. Another thing is to stay indoors and keep a bag of warm clothes near you. Also a good idea would be to carry snow equipment, such as shovels. Also if you need to evacuate then I would do it ahead of time. The day the word gets out that a blizzard is headed your way every one in the state will be headed for the highways and it will be traffic galore, bumper to bumper. So basically just be safe. Stay indoors carry snow equipment and try your best to evacuate the city/town as soon as possible.
