Trust me. Don't ever do that.
It was so strange by the time I left the house at 8AM it was already well into the 50's temp-wise and by the time I drove into town for my first stop to buy ice-melt and a new snow shovel I had taken off my long sleeved shirt and was just wearing a light t-shirt.
I passed a bank that had the temperature up on their sign and it said 62 degrees. 62 and I am buying ice-melt and a snow shovel LOL.
I didn't need much at the grocery store mostly just the standard junk food my son goes through each week like frozen burritos and pizzas, that type of thing. I passed on buying meats because I have been ordered to have the freezers down for lamb butchering next month.
Filled up my gas cans on the way home, unloaded the groceries and then headed right back out and cut another load of firewood. This time it was all big stuff that is going to need splitting before I burn it.
Since we are forecast to have freezing rain and temps in the teens and lower 20's for tomorrow I am leaving the wood on the truck for weight in case things get really bad.
I had all my running and a load of wood cut by 1:30 and then got started on the last bit of my generator preps which entailed cutting a hole in the side of it's storage box so the muffler wouldn't burn the thing down. I still need to put the tarp over the firewood stacked next to the furnace and I am done with storm preps.
It isn't often I get to prep for a single digit temps and freezing rain in a t-shirt.
It just seems somehow very wrong.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
