The making of a blizzard.

Well folks, we’re getting some snow! Again! This storm has everyone in alarm, and I must say it’s prompted several trips to the grocery store for us, as well as the piling of firewood on the porch, and the filling of pots with water. Just in case. As of 10 p.m. tonight, we’re officially grounded. The Governor said so. Which is okay, since home is a nice place to be. Especially when the weather outside is frightful!

Hopefully the electric will stay on and phones & internet will stay up. If not, we’ve got plenty of books to read aloud and Scrabble and Monopoly and lots of candles and kerosene lamps and a woodstove. And gals that know how to cook on a woodstove. Gals that secretly long for the opportunity to test out their backwoods survival skills in a real life  (but not life threatening) situation. That would be Kate and me. We’ve got a whole shelf of Foxfire books and the Reader’s Digest Back to Basics guide, so we’re ready. We are SO ready.


And in the spirit of frostiness, here’s the beginnings of a Snowy Story. It may take a while to finish.

  1. Kim,I have had that Readers Digest book for over 20 years, it’s in tatters. Enjoy your pioneer day, all warm and cozy in a nice home,cup of cocoa, some chili and cornbread…..kinda makes me wish we were snowed in! But, that was last week. Stay warm! Jeri

    • Hi Jeri!
      The electric ended up staying on, but we cooked a small roast with potatoes & carrots in the dutch oven on the woodstove! Yum.
