So, about 9 o'clock Christmas night the power went out. Its still out. We are all electric but have a fireplace. At least we have water, since we are on city water instead of a well like last time it went out for several days during an ice storm. I ran out of firewood, so my son and I cut and split wood yesterday. He and my daughter-in-law and my grand daughter are staying with us since they have no heat at all. Cooking on the coleman stove and fireplace. Came into work today, hence being able to be on the computer now. The gas stations that have power are out of gas. Was able to get some of the last gas around. Now to the point of my story-We were woefully unprepared. I am now going to make it my number 1 priority to stock up on supplies for a winter senario. I've got food, guns, bullets, etc. Firewood, generator, fuel--severly lacking. It wont happen again!
