February 20, 2013, Scottsdale, Ariz. snowfall from the vantage point of the ActiveForever balcony!

Judging by the snowfall in Scottsdale yesterday it’s safe to say winter isn’t over just yet. Weather forecasts predict some pretty significant storms across the country.

The following excerpts from “Huff Post Green:”

A powerful winter storm system moving through the central United States could bring up to a foot of snow to areas of the Plains and reach as far east as the Ohio Valley, according to the National Weather Service.

The Weather Channel has named the system winter storm “Q,” apparently after the New York City subway line, according to The New York Times. But as whimsical as the name might be, authorities aren’t taking winter storm Q lightly.

Winter storm warnings were issued from Colorado to Illinois Wednesday as the system dumped snow in the Rockies and moved eastward. According to the Associated Press, hundreds of snow plows and salt spreaders were prepped in St. Louis Wednesday, well in advance of the storm…

AccuWeather forecasted snowfall totaling up to 24 inches for areas of the Plains, with snow and ice spanning a large part of the central U.S.

Knock that Cold out… Cold!

If you are anything at all like us here at ActiveForever, you are a mere mortal who is wont to fall prey to the common cold and flu from time to time.

It’s even more maddening when, to top it all off, you were a good little soldier and got your flu shot. Confound those blasted germs! (We’ll get you yet… *shakes fist*)

But until that day comes when we, as a species, finally overcome the cold and flu, ActiveForever would like to remind you that we are standing shoulder-to-shoulder here in the virus trenches with you and we’ll never leave. Well… we may have to turn our heads to cough or sneeze from time to time, but other than that we are here to help.

To that end, we thought we’d share a few of our cold and flu season survival kit, must-haves.

We’ll update this list frequently, but for today, we’d thought we’d start with one of our faves:

It’s the Slanket Blanket with Sleeves! These cold weather staples are a superior, long-lasting brand and they come in soo many pretty colors! We like the “Ruby Wine” one pictured below, but just in case you don’t, there’s Apricot, Texas Tea, Moss Green, Hunter Green, Castlerock, (a.k.a. grey) Princess Armor Pink (!) and more!

Enjoy! and Gesundheit!!
