I'm so slow!!! lol I didn't get it at first. Praying your fires are burning strong and keeping you toasty.

It's 85 degrees here today. I think I'd prefer a snow storm at this point. These winter heatwaves can be a little much.

Enjoy the weather and stay warm! :)

We in Ohio are preparing for a storm this week also. I thought quickly about what we might need. I didn't have to run out and get food or provisions. That is a nice feeling. Although we still need a plan for lack of electric and heat. Slowly we are working on being self sufficient. Have a good week!

Very funny, girl friend!

Loved the title of your post. We have a generator so we never worry about the power going out. But it is amazing how many times your name comes into our family's conversation.

We have been talking a lot about living off grid but for different reasons.

Stay warm and toasty.

Blessings,
Connie

I thought about you all last night as the wind was howling outside our house. I was sure hoping that we did not loose power - and thinking how nice you all had it in not having to worry.

Your post made me laugh! Thanks for the smile.

What a great post! I think of my Amish penpal at this time, knowing she's doing the same. Keeping the fires tended to and staying warm.
May you have a wonderful Christmas.
