Just call me the Ice Walker!

I made it to the chicken coop with a load of water and back with fresh eggs and an armful of wood, and no broken hip! Well if you live anywhere in the central or eastern U.S., odds are you are in or preparing for some winter weather. Were all set, with our food storage and emergency supplies there was not much needed. The tornado that hit our town years back, taught me that I was going to be prepared for the worst. We do always have the New Madrid earth quake looming over us. If we ever got the big one our little town would be on it's own for a long time I think. Though I still like to delude myself that as long as I have Earthquake insurance it won't be happening.

 My brother in law is the Fire Chief on Little Gasparilla Island . The island is a unique and wonderful place in Southwest Florida, located in Charlotte County along the Gulf of Mexico about one mile from the mainland and accessible only by boat or ferry. He keeps posting these pictures of the view outside his office window, Can you guess that I want to hate him right now. I offered him a trade of a bad winter storm for a week of his sun and ocean breeze's and he said no go :( I have only myself to blame, we did move back here from sunny South Florida for the changing seasons. And right now I'm ready for it to change to spring. That groundhog had better be seeing it my way or else!!!!!!!
Really though, were all sung as a bug in a rug. The animals are fed and cozy, the batteries are checked, wood stoves roaring, pot of beans simmering on the stove, new book on the Kindle, if my son wasn't out in harms way plowing for MODOT it would be a purrfect storm. Keep safe everyone.....
