Hi Everybody,

Wow.  It takes so much time sorting through all of those photos, and then time to find the exact ones that I want to put into posts.  Thank you for your patience, I am sorry that I haven't gotten back on track yet.  I'll be by to visit and return emails soon, thanks for leaving your comments. 

We have a huge snow storm coming in today; and our roof isn't fixed yet.  Up to 18" of snow is predicted, with high winds.  AHHHH!  Panic in the gray room now.  Our house is still out of sorts waiting for repairs, and it is really bugging me.  Oh, well, there isn't a lot that I can do about it right now.

I'm going to do some errands and then come home and prepare for the possible loss of electricity.  At least if we lose power, I can put the freezer food in coolers on the back porch and hopefully they should be okay.  I'm getting all my cast iron camping pots and pans cleaned up too, just in case we need to use the BBQ for a stove.

I hope that you are all doing well, and thanks so much for stopping by to see what's up.

Sure hope you keep power. Sounds like you are well prepared if not. Do you have solat lights outside? I use mine as indoor lighting when the power goes. Free power.
Stay warm.

We have the same prediction on snow for tomorrow in Washington state, guess we better hang onto our hats :) I have a wood stove so we never worry about all of that. When the electricity is lost we still have heat and one year when we lost power for a week I heated spagetti on the woodstove top. Funny but the boys had a lot of fun with it.

Well, we have our snow and from what I could see on the news you probably have yours too! Happy snow day! :)

Good luck in the storm! Hope it doesn't do too much damage around your house. You sound like you're getting ready for it, too.
