Trying to stay warm....

January 12th, 2007 at 04:22 pm

because it is COLD outside!LOL

Old man winter is knocking on our door here in mid America. It's only 20* right now with a wind chill in the single digits PLUS freezing rain/sleet. We're hoping and praying that the electricity doesn't go out. But, even if it does, we have a generater to get us throughSmile Still, it won't be fun without electricity. Since we're on rural water there are no back up generaters on the pumps...
no electricity=no waterFrown Not good.

But do you know what the BEST thing about this storm is???? I DIDN'T HAVE TO RUN TO THE STORE TO STOCK UP! I took inventory yesterday to see what I needed to get at the store. Um, NOTHING! I have plenty of food in my freezer. A full gallon of milk. 3 loaves of bread in the freezer. Plenty of batteries and candles. We have gasoline tanks down at our shop full of gas to fuel the generators. A GENERATOR(that most people don't have)! Plenty of wood cut for the woodstove insert. And, we've already cleaned and filled several coolers with water. We have a whole camper full of camping gear if we need it too.
Honestly, I couldn't think of one thing we needed!

Good for DH and good for meSmile

    You sound way more prepared than most East Coasters during hurricane season.

    Way to be prepared. I can't believe it gets like that in the winter. I feel like a girl who's never seen snow.

    Its good to be prepared! Some of the families used generators when I was Amish- we have lots of things rigged up. Never ran out of food.
