Surviving The Storm

Well, as yet another winter storm has hit the central Indiana area, I am happy to say that we have survived the worst of the storm and we are out of the danger for a few days. Making preparations for these types of storms when you live in an area that you know road crews won't reach for a few days is always a challenge and I did not do as well this time.

Being that we have dealt with so much snow this winter, I went out with preparing for a snow storm, although we were predicted to get an ice storm. I got supplies but I didn't get Ice Melt or batteries. These would be important items to have in the midst of a major ice storm, but I didn't think of either of them. Luckily, we have a generator and we didn't need the flashlights as we were fortunate enough to not lose power throughout the storm. As many of our county residents are without power and could be until tomorrow resulting in 3-4 days of no electricity.

Weather forecasters are saying that we will see more snow on Saturday and that we could see another accumulating snow on Monday or Tuesday of next week. I guess we will just have to hunker down and be sure to have plenty of things to occupy our time so that cabin fever doesn't settle in too much.

Prayers for all of the people throughout the country who are having worst winter weather than we are. It seems that many states are being hammered with crazy weather and really cold temperatures so we are lucky in the fact that we have a roof over our heads and that we are not cold or hungry.
