Preparing for the Storm

Winter storm warning posted for southern Missouri. 
1/2 to 3/4 inches of ice followed by 6 to 12 inches of snow 
Then below zero temps for Wednesday night
60 degrees on Friday and Saturday and now this.......

Just kidding - my ceramic cats playing in the snow
Last major snow March 2008

The generator is ready, gas and diesel fuel purchased.  Oil lamps and candles are ready, however they are always out and used.  Last minute grocery staples were bought, cupboards are full.  Extra chicken feed was purchased for our hens and the heat lamp is set up in the coop.  Finished up laundry, mailed my swap package, chow mein casserole is in the oven. The only item missing is the Spring issue of "A Primitive Place".  Sure would nice to curl up, watch the snow and read this terrific magazine.  It was not in the morning mail so will have to make do, will be to busy shoveling the white stuff anyway.

I like this picture much better!!!

Prim Blessings to all my friends.
Looks like tomorrow will not be an Ordinary Day
None the less, preparation is key, that we are.


  1. Hi Connie, Just found your blog. I am new to the blogging world, as I just started my own blog a few weeks back. Sounds like you are ready for the winter storm. Here in the South we get very little snow, however a few weeks back we had a few inches and ice also. Shut down our town for a week. It was great to me, however I am sure if I had to put up with it all winter like so many, I would feel different. Stay warm and be careful. Looking forward to making friends in the blogging community. Feel free to visit if you have time

  2. I love your photos especially the last one..glad you are prepared and ready for the snow..nothing is better then being prepared and knowing you are nice and toasty at home.;)
