Looks like the snow storm that is expected to hit us tonight, around 5PM, is going to be a big one. The weather people always say that and then the storm is a fizzle. I think, however, this time they just may be on to something. We’re expected to get up to 10 inches of snow! We’ve already contacted our snow removal guy. We’re third on his list, so it might be a long wait before our driveway is cleared and we get access to our vehicles. or even just be able to get out of the house!
The big problem is that the snow may turn to rain overnight and if it does, that means we wake up on Sunday morning to ice! With expected high winds, it will be just a matter of time till we lose our electricity. Been there. Done that. Hubby made sure our generator is ready and fueled. We also make sure we have cash on hand because should the power go down locally, we may not have purchasing power with a charge card.
Our generator can power up our heat, pump water up our well, power up the TV and streaming internet and just about keep some lights on and give us access to the microwave. I’ve been busy preparing meals that can be warmed up in our microwave (because the stove will not work). Realistically, all we need is heat and water and a hot cup of coffee in the morning. We”ll be fine. So long as a tree doesn’t befall us.
Truthfully, I’m getting sick and tired of all of this. I had thought we had all of this behind us, but I must be wrong. The recent set backs have us standing on square one. Again. What’s the expression? “Never give up?” Today’s not the day to ask me that question.
I’ll try to keep y’all posted. It may be a while. Wish us luck.
