    Hope everyone is ready as they can get.
    I was at Lowes today and they were selling generators like hot cakes.
    Farm King same way.
    I have five kerosene lamps ready to go for light.

    Propane heaters and fireplace for heat.

    Hope everyone is ready for this,if it happens.

    Guess I will load shells tomorrow.

    Please have a (carbon monoxide detector) in your home if you have to use a propane heater inside.

    Same here in SE MI, my neighborer is a school bus driver for the local school district and she said it was a hairy drive this morning. The Home owner associations around here don't have or won't spend the money on salting the roads so she called the school district and told them she won't pick up kids in sub divisions that were not salted. The kids had to walk to main roads that were safer to drive those big busses. More of the same tomorrow.

    I'm working in Mississippi this week. It's supposed to be 85 here tomorrow in Jackson. What a difference 150 miles makes.

    So far so good.....we have the wood stove going and have a generator handy. Also kerosene lanterns and other supplies. Headed out to the grocery store today..oh, my goodness, it was REALLY busy. I can hear it sleeting and raining outside right now. Started about 5:45 here. they are calling for an inch and 1/2 of ice. If we get that......severe damage here again I am sure.

    praying for everyone's safety tonight.
