Thursday Special ~ Winter Warning

The Weather Channel has issued a travel warning due to snowfall and bad road conditions.

They suggest that anyone travelling in the current icy conditions should ensure they have the following items with them:

Blankets or sleeping bag
Extra clothing including hat and gloves
24 hours worth of food
Rock Salt
Road flares or reflective triangles
Full gas can
First Aid kit
Booster cables

I looked like an idiot when I got on the bus this morning!

If anyone sees Nancy L, please relieve her of that heavy load, take her home and tell her I said “Thank you” for this little beauty today!

    I am so sick of this weather, have had to cancel so many appointments, repeatedly, Today is a new twist, 130k/hr winds. At least all the snow was blown from yesterday. Now for the ice…

    We are in a drought here. It has been in the upper 70’s for weeks, with a drying North wind to boot. 64 last night at 9:30PM… We really need the moisture that seems to be all around us…sigh

    That made me laugh until I thought about all the “emergency” items I carry on my person in the form of a large handbag. Not a shovel and rocksalt, but I likely have enough bandages, aspirin,handkerchiefs, and antihistamines to operate a small outpatients.
    I do keep a winter kit in the car, that thankfully I have never needed to use.

      Sewing kit, small scissors, plasters, safety pins, hand wipes, tissues and a couple of individual sugar sachets were to be found in my bag. The last item was for a couple of friends who had diabetes.
