Winter Storm Hercules

3 Jan


Winter Storm Hercules blew through here and left us with a light dusting of snow and temps in the teens, but according to the weatherman, that is nothing compared to what we may see in the next few days. Things could get dicey with a 100% chance of precipitation Sunday with temps falling to the single digits. BURRRR! I hate that kind of cold weather. I saw a forecast HIGH for Minneapolis of –7 degrees! I also saw the Green Bay Packers were having trouble selling out the upcoming playoff game. No wonder, who would want to sit out in those kind of temps to watch a game? Anyway, I am writing this on Thursday so I have several days to check my preps and get ready. I sent Sweet Thing to the store today and got the fixings for a big pot of homemade chili so we should be set in case we have to hole up for a few days. Are you ready? Keep prepping everyone!

    We’re getting ready to tough it out here in Madison. Monday’s expected low is -23F with a high of -11F. School Monday has already be cancelled.

    Here we were down to -10, schools have been canced bc of the wind chill, last I checked the wind chill was -27. Kids can get frost bite in 5 min if they’re exposed to that. People’s pipes have been freezing and bursting, and fun ices have been falling apart from being ran so much. I think my family will be prepping for this in the future :/
