Getting Ready

We are expecting an ice-storm stating tomorrow
and lasting through to Sunday so Mom has been busy getting ready as the last one that had in our area knocked out the power for up to a month in places.....we are expecting maybe a day or two (paws crossed).  Sadly for us our house is all electric so Dad went out and got us a gas heater (we actually have a gas fireplace but can't get it to work) and we got a little gas cooker so we can have hot food and drinks.  The temperature has already dropped from 72 degrees yesterday to 40 right now and it is still going down. We have plenty of food both human and doggie and plenty of all the essentials so hopefully we are all set to go. Mom also got candles and new batteries for the torches. Mom had to cancel her doctors appointment for tomorrow as they are forecasting one and half inches of ice on the road by 6 am and there is no way Mom was going to risk driving on that. So today we are stuck inside mostly as Mom closed our doggie door to help keep the house warm - instead we have been helping mom put up some Christmas decorations and hang our stockings. Please stay warm and safe where ever you live and drive extra extra careful if you have to go anywhere.
We are pleased to say our card count now stands at :
22 - for us
0 - for mom and dad

  11. I hope your power stays on. We lost power for 5 days during an ice storm once. Not fun. The good part was we could store all our refrigerated food outside though, so it didn't go bad! Jeff made my coffee with a blow torch! You get creative when times are tough.

    Stay warm and safe!

  12. Hope it passes as soon as possible , stay warm in home :)

  13. I hope you and your family stay safe and warm with this bad storm coming your way. Love your socks. The only problem is I can not read alot of your posting as your Christmas Balls cover the text. Hope your mom is getting better and not hurting so much. Paws crossed that everyone is safe.

Oh, that is mostly a dream, they weather peeps say it's probably just gonna rain, butts a pup can hope, right?! I hopes you guys at least can keep your heats, if your Moms is anythings like my Ma, she can get grumpy when the heat goes...

  18. Be careful you guys, don't let your Mom walk on the ice, she can NOT afford to fall!!! You guys need to watch her every second! We started worrying about you when we saw the national weather!!

    We got your present for Katie. She sniffed it real good. I told her she had to wait till Christmas to open it. She's not speaking to me right now. :)
