Here comes the big one

March 13th, 2017 at 05:18 am

Blizzard, that is...we're expecting 2 feet tomorrow and heavy winds. I just pray I keep my power on.

I was scheduled for a heating oil tank fill-up today. I usually tell the woman on the phone to tell the driver not to drive up the driveway on my new pavers. I forgot, but had jotted down in my daily Things to Do list that I should move my car to block that portion of the upper driveway.

Except that the tanker truck arrived at 7:15 am, shortly after I got up.

He was already backing in as I rushed to throw on some clothes. I got him to move the truck and luckily no damage was done to the pavers. It was the mason who suggested I keep heavy trucks off it.

Now I see I'm running low on cat meds, with about 6 days left. I should really go down there today to pick up another 1.5 month supply.

    We just got it here -- the ground is covered, but it doesn't look too bad. However, it may intensify by the time it gets to you. Take care!

    Ugh. I hope it is not as bad as predicted. Do you have a wood stove in your home? Or a generator? We are looking into getting a kerosene heater for emergencies since those can be burned indoors without venting to the outside. We could heat 1200 square feet with one, which would be nice in a power failure.

    can you tell me more about the kerosene heater, LR? I haven't heard of a heat source you didn't have to vent.

    Happy to send the snow off your way; hope you don't get it too bad. We've had lots of lake effect snow.
