    I'll apologize in advance if this seems silly. We've been expecting a snow storm and sure enough the weather man delivered. We were supposed to get 7+/- inches and by one this afternoon we had four inches of wet heavy gunk. Now five hours later we're up to a foot of the stuff. Its supposed to snow all night. Its Maine, its winter, go figure...

    Why the weather report, well last weekend I stocked my car. Quilt, shovel, twenty pounds of kitty litter, four pounds of salt, jumper cables, a couple quarts of oil with funnel and two snow brushes. Not to mention, gaters, two extra pairs of gloves, waterproof pants and jacket. This is in addition to all the normal stuff, first aid kit and the like. Before I left work I tossed half a sandwich and a quart of water in my bag. I was feeling pretty darn good about driving home in this crud today.

    Preparing did a pretty good job of taking care of my mental health.

    You ladies can identify with this, surprize visitors always seem to come when the house is a mess. I like being prepared, it keeps little disasters from becoming big ones.

    That was us last winter; 45" in 4 days. And that was on top of the 15" that was already on the ground. :eek: Since I plow, I spent most of a week living in my truck. Just had to stop at home now and then to make a fresh thermos of tea. :)
