Continued SNOW Post!!!! Bad weather on its way!!!!

I know we have 18inches and up coming our way so if snowed in these are a few supplies that you should have on hand!!!!Canned and other non-perishable food we can eat without heating or that we can easily heat in the wood stove. Suggestions include cereal, granola bars, canned fruit, canned soup and beans, powered milk, nuts, etc. Throw in some chocolate if you want to be a hero. And if you have a baby who’s on formula, don’t forget to store some extra of that, or no one will be happy.
Manual can opener. Because your electric one isn’t going to do you much good when the power is out and using a knife can be a bit dangerous, I've found.
Matches and dry wood and kindling. Use only if you have a wood stove or fireplace, please.
Flashlights and extra batteries, and candles. Necessary only if you want to see your family members at night or if you want to avoid walking into furniture and walls.
Gallons of drinkable water.
Toilet tissue. No explanation needed, I hope.
Old-school NON-CORDLESS phone. This will allow you to have phone capabilities even if the power goes out and your cell phone doesn’t work. Of course, if phone lines go down, too, you're out of luck.
Battery-operated radio. Again, necessary only if you want to know what's going on in the world. Sometimes, I don't want to.
Several-days supply of important medications. For us, this includes children’s ibuprofen and Benadryl, because I do NOT want to experience H1N1 or an allergic reaction without pharmaceuticals.
Important phone numbers, such as who to call to report a power outage and your supervisor’s cell phone number. Maybe add your mother to the list if she worries like mine.
Plenty of extra blankets and quilts. Unless you prefer shivering. Your call.
Instant coffee. I once went four days without caffeine because of a blizzard. It wasn’t pretty.

Board games to keep family members from going crazy from boredom without Wii.
All this important info can be found at the site below!!!!

Some valentines creations

 I hope you're all having a relaxing Sat. Boy its cold here!!!! I have been doing some going through some of my old decorations and crafts I've made over the years and thought I would post some of them for your enjoyment! Maybe to inspire........

 I took a old Annie doll and added some valentine elements out of boredom. I made a rusty wing angel, I got this Valentine heart from goodwill I do believe.
 The Hearts that are wrapped in tulle are store bought cookies dipped in smell good wax to preserve them!!!! I put them under my Valentine tree every year so that it looks like little Valentine packages under there!!!! I'm fixing to get my butt in gear and make a trip outta town to a hobby lobby, because I am "OUT" of craft supplies I can't really create anything new and it STINKS!!!! Hope you all have a nice weekend!!!!
