grocery stores and snow storms

I actually do need bread!  I would rather have a root canal without novocaine than go to the grocery store tomorrow because a “BLIZZARD OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!”  is predicted.   The stores will be packed with people in a panic, and the shelves will probably be bare.   I need bread for the Bear’s lunch on Sunday – so I can’t really wait.  I don’t want to go tonight, so I guess I just grin and bear it.

I don’t quite the need to clean out the grocery stores.  If there’s that much snow, no one will have time to cook, the power will probably go out and your eggs and milk will go bad anyway.

I love the posts about how people want to sit by the fire and sip hot chocolate.  Yeah, most likely fall asleep in front of the fire – if you’ve had enough energy to build one – because you’re so exhausted from shoveling.   Don’t forget to shovel off your roof as well!

    We have a woodstove and live out in the country.
    The stove has two places on it to where you can actually cook. I haven’t tried that yet, but I want to.
    Several years ago we had a bad ice storm.
    Power went out for two whole weeks, and I loved it!
    We had a generator for back up. I think one other person had one too. Otherwise, you heard nothing!
    This year there are more generators. 😉
    The stove is run off propane. So that was okay too.
    I didn’t mind making a fire in the stove. I keep it going a lot.
    We use cedar and oak. Cedar will burn hot and get things going fast. The oak will burn a lot longer.
    Our cats and dogs love the radient heat coming off of it. And they dont really get that close.
    Animals seem to have a built in safety thing about fires.
    But I love the sound of the snow. It seems to muffle things and make them more quiet. And also make things look clean and looking.
    The ice storm had trees popping and snapping. It was strange because I had never heard that before. It sounded like rifles going off. Really strange to hear!
    It took a lot of big trees down too. And in some places, you still can see the damage it did.
