I’m hooked

It seems love it took forever to happen, but finally our first big Winter season storm is here. The forecast is calling for lots of snow, and even worse, ice! That means both of us need to be ready for anything, with deicer for the driveway, water for us to drink, and plenty of ways to keep warm. The first thing both of us constantly do once we’re in the heart of the storm is turn the Heating and Air Conditioning program up just a little bit. This way both of us can make sure that the lake house is cozy when the power goes out, so if both of us do happen to lose power the lake house will stay warmer without the heat than it would if both of us were running it at a cooler tempt love both of us normally do! Once both of us have that ready to go, both of us round up all of the flashlights and lanterns in the lake house and distribute them among us, so no matter what room both of us are in when things get dark, both of us can get around without hurting ourselves. The last thing both of us do is make sure the area heating systems are all hooked up and that both of us have plenty of firewood for the wood burning stove. The area heating systems are great when the high winds chop through and make things cold, and the firewood insures that both of us have another way to stay sizzling in the event that both of us lose power, and plus with the wood stove both of us can cook food on it. Prepping for an outage takes a lot of work, but it’s worth it to be sizzling and safe.
