Our friend flew in bright and early Friday morning to purchase this hot Harley from another friend of ours. We expected he would be staying the weekend but with the incoming storm and winter weather to hit our NC mountains overnight and tomorrow he headed out Saturday to beat the storm. He called this morning after stopping for the night due to light rain and super cold temps only to get up this morning to light snow in the Rocky Mountains. Harley's and snow are NO FUN!!!!
Since I had an unexpected few extra hours today I knocked out the top to bottom cleaning in the breakfast room. I decided to wash the window treatments and send them on their way to goodwill tomorrow. I am in the mood for something new and different. Our kitchen chairs are covered in fabric ticking, I'm thinking I might go that route just as soon as I get my hot hands on a 50% off coupon that is.Kathy's post on preparing for this monster storm.
Hubby and I are finally taking a break for a bit before heading to Karsyn's Birthday party this afternoon. We have been in our own worlds today getting some much needed honey do's done on our respective lists. Together we got all of the mattresses turned and flipped (what a job). He has put together a "how to" for me on starting the generator that he expects me to learn today. If I don't post in the future you will know I failed in learning this new task!! Ha We are also having a neighbour over to learn how to fire up the generator in case hubby is out of town and the need should come up. Maybe between us both we can keep the freezers running in an emergency. When hubby made the generator purchase we bought the biggest portable one we could afford with plans to share the power with neighbours. Hubby is the expert on all things electric, I am getting better at all things none electric to keep our family safe, feed and comfortable in and emergency.
If you are in the path of this storm PLEASE stay safe!!!! All eye's, thoughts and prayers of the country are with you.
