The Weatherman said 'Get Ready".

WE have some snow coming.  How much, Well not as much as the east just had

But we are to get some wind and that is always a concern with heavy snow.

Branches and power lines snap with snow, ice, and wind.

So, I took a couple hours to make sure I am ready.

 

Fired up the generator and made sure it started ok.

Picked up extra 10 gallons of gas.

Made sure our propane tank was at a high enough level.

Filled 5-5 gallon buckets of water for washing and toilet flushing.

WE have great water so we filled up our camping jugs for drinking water and coffee.  (Enough for about a week).

Gased all the vehicles up and brought an extra 10 gallons for the plow truck, just in case.

Grocery store we picked up mild bread eggs and hamburger and some other not so necessity items. ( the store was not busy at all)

Chains are on the tractor

We did some other odd jobs that would have been harder with 6+ inches of snow.

So, now we are ready.  We don't have to rush or worry the store is out of what we call necessity.

Did we go over board, well not if it turned into a major storm, but who knows, the Halloween storm of '91 wa supposed to give us 3-4 inches and we got 18.

 

Let it snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
