We are under a winter storm warning where I live in the South. Everyone has been to get their milk and bread at Walmart! We are expecting more snow than ice. South of us there may be lots of ice. People in our area just don't know how to drive in the icy, snowy weather. Highway and interstates are closed already. We have plenty of food here in our house and we are prepared. Years ago we were without power for days when there was an ice storm. We have not had icy weather in years.
In 1993 we had "The Blizzard of "93". The state was shut down for days! We had about 2 feet of snow which is a once in a lifetime event for us. We were without power for days and at the time we were totally dependent on electricity to keep us warm. We had the fireplace and kept warm by the fire and listened to the radio. We "camped out" by the fireplace to stay warm. We slept on a mattress all snuggled up. Since that event we now have gas logs and a gas hot water heater. Everyone here remembers March of 1993 due to the blizzard and plenty of stories to tell.
I have my hand sewing on standby along with plenty of books and magazines to read to occupy the time should the power go out. I made beef stew for lunch and an Italian Cream cake for something sweet to eat. Hopefully the electricity will not be affected and the ice and snow will soon be just a memory!
