Stormy wanted to play today, but I was busy with laundry, vacuuming, and all the jobs that require electricity. We are supposed to have an ice storm moving in. And that means a possibility of the electric going out.
Schools have already canceled Friday's classes including the University of Missouri campus. My daughter cancelled at her early learning center and our son said he was working from home. BG is a rural electric lineman so he will have to work until any loss of power is restored. Did you know that just a quarter of an inch of ice adds an extra 500 pounds to a power line?
I went to the grocery store Wednesday and stocked up on some essential items. What? Ice cream isn't essential? Of course it is. Especially if it's Rocky Road ice cream. ☺ Brownies will be made before the ice arrives. I have sandwich fixings and chips. So, if the power goes out for a few days and I'm not able to cook, I won't get hungry.
I must admit that ice makes me nervous for a number of reasons. And being without electricity means no internet! Oh, what will I do? Well, I just happen to have a stack of unread books, so I'm set. Now I'm off to gather up some candles and get the flashlights out.
Stay safe and warm...and have a nice weekend!
