I think we have decided to hunker down and brave out the storm.
Now, should we all be sleeping in our smallest bedroom with a tent-safe propane heater because we have lost power (and by all, I mean six of us, a large cat, tiny lizard and three puppies) .. (and by smallest, I mean Brynne or Eli's 10x12 bedroom), then we might regret this decision.
Because by the time this is happening, the roads will be too bad for us to drive out of here.
But we figure if we can sleep in a soft-side pop-up camper in Yellowstone with temps at or below freezing with that same tent-safe propane heater, and survive, that surely we can survive while we are hunkered down in our fully-insulated, brick home with all of the clothing and blankets we can pile on.
Of course we had a major family meltdown during that time.
And quit calling me Shirley.
