Delaware Beware ...

As I write this post, the wind is whipping
around our house and big, fat snowflakes
are falling at a rate faster than I care to see ...

We're in the middle of a major blizzard ...

I live in Delaware ...
in the southernmost county ...
our forecast is for 15 inches of
snow by Saturday morning ...
snow to continue all day Saturday ...
an additional 12 inches of
snow by Saturday evening ...

Our Gov. has declared a
"state of emergency" ...

information from the weather service
has cautioned everyone to expect to
soon be without electrical power ...
also to expect the possiblity of being
"snowed in" for 1 - 2 weeks ...
the exact words were along the lines of
"expect to be buried in 2 to 3 feet of snow" ...


My family did everything in our power
to prepare for this massive blizzard ...
I think we have enough food ...
I have about two weeks worth of
my prescription medications ...
we have a kerosene heater ...
we have a gas log fireplace, but sadly
the propane company did not follow
through with our call on Thursday
morning requesting that they come
out and fill our propane tank ...

I'm not ashamed to admit that
I am very scared of this blizzard ...

We have quite a group in our home ...
1 Puppy
2 Ferrets
3 Cats
4 Humans

We also have alot of prayer
going on between all of us ...
and lots of snuggling and cuddling
under soft blankets and heavy quilts
lovingly stitched by hand many
years ago by my Grandmother ...

It is my prayer that God hold
those in the path of this
blizzard safely in His hands ...

May you all have a wonderful weekend ...

God bless ...

Until another time ... Pearl

Hope you are faring well. We had about 16 inches. Blowing and drifting today with high winds. Digging out. Hunkering down. I am doing a post not next week but the week after with pics! Praying you are warm and well.

Hi Pearl, Prayers are with you and your family! Ashley is in West Virginia on a ski trip with her church youth group, over 80 people. They {the van she was in}, spun out in Virginia yesterday, and were stranded on the side of the road for awhile until a wrecker could pull them out. Praying that they make it home on Sunday, and make it home safely! I am also praying that you and your family are warm, safe, and that the storm is not nearly as bad as they are predicting! Let us know how are doing, if you have power and are able! ~Big {warm} hugs sent your way, Rhonda :)
