Being from Missouri you never know what the weather is going to be day to day, oh the joys of our climate! In January I try to get vamped up for winter whether it looks like winter outside or not, just so I am prepared. I remember the ice storm we received here so graciously in 2002, our family was without power for over a week. God blessed us because we were able to find a hotel that had a backup generator and there was only one room left. As I walked in to the hotel I was shocked to see so many people in the lobby trying to get a room, I felt so sorry for them but thankful and blessed that I reserved the room before we got there! We didn’t get power for a week so needless to say my husband, 3 children were laid up in the hotel, I sometimes wonder how we kept our sanity! It was certainly a bad time in our area! So my family and friends call me paranoid when I run to the grocery store to stock up on groceries when I hear that bad weather is coming. With that said I came across two great articles that can get up semi prepared for winter that I wanted to share. Please see the links below. I hope that you find them as helpful as I did. Have a great day! Remember if I can help you in anyway please give me a call, email, or text, I would love to hear from you!
