I picked up all the normal staples that are common for blizzards around here. Bread flour, sugar, butter, milk, cream, fruit, veggies and a few extras like coffee, baking chocolate and nuts. Yes and some batteries - you know, so I can listen to my CD's while pulling hay through the snow... Once the truck was full I headed to the feed store - 5 fifty pound bags of dog food, 4 - forty bags of chicken feed, and a sack of goat formula. Yes, you read that right - I know that none of the girls had been breed this season but we all remember Agatha, our virgin birth. So I thought just in case - remember it is never dull around here and I would rather be prepared - you know me, nervous Nelly.
I had the propane tank filled - it had been since April and I just did not want to be stuck with no heat in a blizzard during the holidays - Been There, Done That... So once returning home - now it was about 10 am and as I pulled into my driveway the deer had been working fast on gathering something to eat as well before the snow flies again. Now we all will just wait and see if we are getting the 14 inches they predict - Keep those fingers crossed that they got it wrong again but if not we have plenty to eat and I am sure much to keep me busy as the new dawn breaks.
It has been snowing since 3:00 this afternoon so soon I will go out and check on everyone and will do so through the night if it keeps coming as hard and fast as it has been. I guess it will be another night with little sleep under my belt - I had to punch two more holes in the belt the other day - it is getting too cold outside to have those pants drop around my knees - heehee!!
