The National Weather Service has issued an Ice Storm Warning for us this evening. That’s not what I want to hear. It is bad enough to get snow, but ice and freezing rain is all together a different matter. So, I spent a couple of hours getting prepared just in case.
I made sure all of our flashlights had good batteries and plenty of spares on hand.
I made sure I could find my small propane cylinders for my propane lanterns and cookers.
I checked out my kerosene heaters and made sure I had plenty of fuel.
I checked my propane heater and made sure I had extra fuel.
I made sure my firewood was stacked and accessible.
I checked my chainsaw in case I have to cut some downed trees or limbs.
I made sure my generator was serviced up and ready to go.
I checked my emergency radio and made sure I had spare batteries. Yesterday I showed you the pantry, so you know I am OK as far as food supplies. I’m OK for extra water as well. I already have a post scheduled on that subject coming up in a day or two. So, it looks like I am all set if the storm hits, I sure hope I don’t need any of this stuff, but it sure feels good to know I have it if I need it.
