Weird winter. Here in North Texas I got 5 1/2 inches of snow the first Monday of March. 4 days later got another 6 inches! All this on a 1 1/2 inch base of ice. Of course the power was out and I was told maybe 3 days. Turned into 5 days. I had propane heat and a fireplace with plenty of wood outside. I cooked on a one burner Coleman stove. Most important as it heated the water for my coffee.
I did hit up my Prepper supplies and did not even go to my front gate a half mile away on a gravel driveway over a dam! The cell signal was maybe a bar and a half so text messages worked but not voice.
Being pregnant and with 5 kids during your experience should be enough for Mom of the Week!
