This predicted blizzard is nothing most of us have not been through before, many times over, including the record blizzard of 1967 that the local media uses as a benchmark.
I’ve gone over my checklists. In case of power failure, there is plenty of firewood, and fuel for the emergency generator. We are well stocked with food and water. The all-wheel-drive big green GMC has new tires, a full tank of fuel, and the ever-present bag of emergency supplies. I’ll be staying home unless driving is essential.
The snow blower has been tanked-up, tested, and is ready to go. Helping out others will take up most of my time.
