Yuck! Right now we're in the middle of an Ice Storm. Personally, I'd rather have feet of snow than dealing with this. Not much I can really do about it and it's not the end of the world. All I can do is be safe, keep my family safe, and be prepared.
So, let's see.... if and when we lose power, we're ready.
- I made a huge pot of ham and potato chowder yesterday and cooked it on the wood stove.
- I filled 5, 5 gallon buckets with water and have them sitting by the toilets. We have a private well, so no electricity means no running water. It might be overkill, but I'm ready!
- I have 3 gallons of water that I always have on hand for emergencies. Then I bought 4 more gallons & then went on to fill every single water bottle we have in the house. At least we'll have plenty of water!
- And we have the wood stove to keep us warm.
More rain is coming and the temps are going to drop even more...we're at 28F right now. Oh and the wind is picking up. Awesome.
But at least it's pretty!
And I had zero desire to run outside today. So, I picked Jill up and went to the gym this morning. I ran 6 miles, rowed for 10 minutes. I call it a great day. In preparation for today, and the possibility of the gym being closed, I went to the gym last night and got in 3 miles and 5 minutes of rowing. Not too shabby.
Sorry for the blurry selfie. I got in a quick one before running off to the shower. I didn't want to be stuck smelling like this without power. Gross!
