    I thought bullets and beef jerky were essentials. Go figure.

    I hope your ice storm not to bad ! I remember the great Ice Storm of 1998 we
    had in Maine.What a nightmare that was all my pipes froze up ,I lost all my food in the freezer a thousand bucks,sewer line even froze.I hauled water to flush the toilets and we kept the house warm with a kero sun heater.All the motels and hotels were full and besides I couldn't afford to pay for that for 17 days as we
    were just starting out and our kids were fairly young still.Of course,insurance
    paid very little so it wasn't worth it.At the time we had an independent Governor
    who refused some funding from Washington that would allow some relief to the
    folks that went out and hired an electrician to install all the wiring so you could
    take your house off the grid while you were running the generator.

    no fair...I don't have a winter storm warning excuse. I think I'm just a wee bit too far north for this one (Clarke Co on the Shenandoah River).

    I just hope I don't end up in the ice zone. I love LOADS of snow...The ice is just flat out dangerous.

    Yeah...we are all talking of snow and ice storms here and New South Wales in Australia has 248F (120C) the other day that animals were coming out of the bush (forests) to seek shelter in nearby homes and find water.

    Bought plenty of beer and the makings for a pot of chili, also 5gal of Kerosene for the heater in the garage/mancave *makes caveman grunt sounds* If I get cabin fever I can head out to the garage drink beer as I contemplate which project to get started on. Change oil in truck or buff out the paint or grab another beer from fridge and just watch it snow...
