In Vermont, in winter, we talk about the weather

A lot.
We are expecting another storm tomorrow, the prognosticators are saying 12-18 inches of snow, with strong winds, and temps in the twenties. Not much we can do but be prepared.

Yesterday I mixed up batches of 4 different kinds of cookies, stuck them in sealed bowls and stashed them in the big fridge (the garage) since there's no room in the regular fridge. I have enough milk, bread, pasta, fruit, veggies and water to last until Valentine's Day, I think. Too bad I couldn't pre-buy tomorrow's newspaper, I'd be all set.Tomorrow we'll watch movies and bake cookies and decorate and eat until we roll. Unless the power goes out, in which case we won't bake or watch movies.

I stuck a yardstick out the back door. This is the "before" shot - it's 6 1/2 inches deep out there. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

Criminy. I can't even imagine it. I certainly can't imagine how the wildlife makes it through the winter.

Out of curiousity, how do you heat your home when your power goes out? Do you have some mechanism that doesn't require at least an electric blower motor?

I wish I had thought of the yardstick! I could use that today...
