Is anyone else feeling it?



I feel like all this snow is a big fat mini test (Does that makes sense?). A test to see how well we are prepared for an emergency. From this crazy snow storm I have learned...

I need to stalk up on pillar candles. Our electricity has been off twice now. Not for long periods of time. Nothing serious, but enough to let me know I need more light.

I need D batteries for my fireplace.

Our ward is awesome. I can't tell you how many calls we've had making sure we were all good.

I'm thankful for a tough truck. Very handy.

Cell phones rule as long as they are charged. Thank goodness for car chargers.

Pray more often.

Read scriptures more often.

I love my stinking kids to death. An extra week of no school will certainly put that to test. I loved it.

Do not do last minute Christmas shopping online. Shipping is not guaranteed during a snow storm.

Food storage. Food storage. Food storage.

I like snow better than rain!



Sid beating Boston down the hill. I guess it was a tad flat for the board. So Boston says anyway.

I cannot believe the snow you guys are getting! It better be all gone so you guys can get down here though. It looks like the kids are having a blast with it too!

We have been learning the same lessons:) I'm like you though, I like the snow much more than rain!

You've lost electricity? Have you stayed warm? I'm with you, i like the snow much better than the rain too.

I need to talk to you about batteries for the fireplace, wonder if ours works the same way. I like snow, but it needs to be off the roads at some point for me to enjoy it more. We are learning the same lessons on shipping.

I learned the 'last minute shopping on line' lesson, too. One of our gifts has still not arrived and I ordered it last Monday. Bummer! I'm holding out hope for tomorrow...fingers crossed.

We lost our power for a while too and I was so glad we had just bought some new cool LED flashlights.

Snow is better than rain because it makes everything look clean.

So I guess you all had a white Christmas? LUCKY!

I just can't really say much. :(

A battery operated fire place? I'm going to be checking in with you for details on that one, nice!

I have loved our "test" I think you put in beautifully!

I hope your Christmas was awesome!

Sad I missed you guys. You know, the 40 is only a four hour detour - here & bach to flag. It goes to Cali!

Elizabeth said...

Yes, we were glad to be prepared, too! I wish Boston had been able to get some more air (is that the right term? :-)

brenda said...
