At one point the electricity went out so emergency supplies were piled on the kitchen counter before we lost the last bit of sun coming through the windows. Candles, oil lamps, matches, battery radio, deck of cards, etc. I instructed EVERYONE not to open the refrigerator or freezer.
Plans were in the works for dinner pulled from our basement's storeroom. We keep canned foods such as Alaskan salmon, green beans, tomato sauces, grains, pastas, etc. In emergencies, we can heat with a gas heating stove .. and our oven has a gas cook top that can be lit with a match for cooking when the power is out. This was not the first loss of power this week .... and before dinner, it was restored, bringing a happy sigh of relief.

It's snowing again ... you can bet I'll keep a better eye on the depth so hubby can wake up and plow ;)
