More terrible weather coming ice storm warning for the next few days! Just miserable! Maybe stock up on candles and put gas in the generator. Don't park under trees. Go away winter!!

Yep we toped up the generader as well today. At least we can hook up the freezers, fridges , couple tv and radio and a few light's if the power's out a few days. Aww and the fresh brewed coffee in the morning lol.

I keep my back up generator full all the time, as well as my back up/back up generator. Filled all my jerry cans on the way home tonight,,,,$125!

A guy at the gas station asked me what I'd do with all that gas if the power doesn't go out. I told him my boat can drink it all in about 2 hours.

Both vehicles are parked away from the trees with full tanks.

And the most important thing I filled today,,,,,





my beer fridge.

Yup same here, moved the genny out of it's hiding place, picked up 15 gallons of fuel, filled up the truck in case I get a fire call, both vehicles in the shop out of the weather. Should be good for a few days if the hydro does go out. Lets hope we miss it or it doesn't get as bad as weather man is predicting.

Well it's here, raining pretty good and it's sounds like freezing rain on the windows.

What a dark gloomy day....

Might have to open the bar early today..

It already switched to freezing rain and ice pellets here in Orangeville about two hours ago. I just went out to get something from my vehicle and couldn't get the door open due to ice buildup. This winter from he11 just won't quit.

For adults it's what ever time you say it is, every kid knows that and it's all was after 12pm somewhere. Like here it's 10:37 past 12.
