Here’s The Best Way to Prepare For That Dreaded Winter Storm
Here’s the best way to prepare for that dreaded winter storm. When you’ve had enough of the freezing temperatures – start complaining!
A year ago, on Groundhog Day, winter was predicted for six more weeks.
I didn’t mind because we were having a lovely, mild winter.
And then the storm hit.
We had snow and ice and single-digit temperatures.
And no power or water for many days.
It was awful.
I swore off snow.
I never wanted to see it again.
This year, again, the groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter.
And right on schedule, it’s snowing.
This time, however, it’s only a dusting of snow.
It’s supposed to stop before noon.
But the freezing temperatures are going to last for a couple more days.
Luckily, we still have power and water.
As long as we have utilities, I’m not going to complain.
But I’m prepared.
Prepared to complain.
If you hear some very loud curse words from somewhere in the middle of the country, that means the power’s gone out.
And I’m mad.
