So today looks a little better, but we still have a lot of snow. Many of us, like my family, are still without water. We still have to boil snow for water. We found a store that had some bottles of water yesterday which, allowed us to grab four more bottles.
I am a little fearful of what happens after the snow disappears. It has been easy enough getting the snow over these last few days, but after it is gone, what happens? A lot of the stores are empty now. I have no clue as to when the trucks will start running again. I have a big bin full of snow and some snow in the freezer.
We have plenty of beans, I stockpiled them during COVID, so until the stores restock, we will have to bean it up. I think the scariest part of all this is not knowing. I know the trucks will have to come at some point and restock, but I do not know when. I miss taking baths and showers already.
I would beat a person up for a loaf of bread right now!!! Okay, beat up is too strong! I would maybe tickle them to death or something. We have tuna, but the store didn’t have mayo or bread. We have peanut and jelly minus the bread, but we have crackers. I also managed to get noodles and potato salad. Yeah, don’t ask. I have a thing for mustard potato salad, and once again, the store was low on food. I have one pack of links, brats, some ground beef plus, and a crapload of beans. So, we are blessed. I read something from a mother in Nextdoor this morning asking for milk for her baby. Out of 14 people, only one person had something they could give. I wished I had milk, but we ran out days ago.
Anyway, this is what’s happening in our area right now. We are all trying to figure out how to navigate the coming days. Thank you for following us, and stay safe.
