Besides prepping water pipes, figuring how to keep chickens warm and their water thawed I think we need to worry about possible power outage due to predicted high winds and strain on grid from millions trying to keep warm. I’m fully implementing Marica’s plan to do my laundry Thursday and dry the clothes Thursday evening thus using dryer as a source of heat. Great idea! Thanks Marica.
My weather app indicates low of 8° with winds above 40 mph and windchill of -15°. Hmmm. Local TV (Dallas, nothing closer) weather says 10° with no mention of high winds. Of course, meteorologist haven’t really perfected forecasts we can rely upon in a day to day, weekly timeline. However, rest assured that those involved in the science of weather can assure us that unless we all purchase a $40,000- 50,000+ ev car soon, the world will end in some 6 years or so.
Stay warm, be safe. I’m sure we’ll chat again before Christmas.
