    I keep hitting F5 to refresh the weather, so why is it still saying 6 to 10 inches of snow for tomorrow? After a summer of record setting rainfalls we are getting this already! It isn't even Halloween yet! [​IMG]

    Well ~ we only got about 6" of snow, but it really made a mess. We have lots of trees and branches down and have not had power for over 24 hours. The power company said it will be another couple of days until they will have us back online. Our road was covered with trees and branches ~ but thanks to our wonderful "redneck" neighbors & their tractors the road is passable again.

    We have a wood stove for heat and can cook on our gas stove by light it with a match, candles and oil lamps for light. We have a well so we have no water except what we saved ahead of time. We did melt snow to wash dishes and for flushing toilets. We do have a stream which I can get water from for the chickens.

    We are at my parents house for showers, internet and refilling water jugs. I am just hoping that the food in our freezer makes it until the power is back on. We will be shopping for a generator this week.
