We Slid Into Another Car Last Night

I can’t wait for this weather to go away. So, we had to venture out a little further than I expected last night As we were turning into an eatery, watching a cop attend to a wreck, we slid into this truck’s tire. Our car is small, so after backing up it slid back down. The cop came running over and checked on us and the truck driver.

By this time, the driver and my husband were looking at our vehicles. Needless to say, the truck was fine, but our car has a scratch. The cop said the whole thing was on video and then he couldn’t help but laugh. He was like the whole thing was pretty hilarious, then he saw my frown. He said he didn’t mean hilarious, but blah blah is all I heard next.

It was sort of funny, but seeing him say it was shocking! Anyway, it is good to see humanity still has a sense of humor. As for the scratch, we will have to get that removed a little later.

As for current plans, we are still on a boil water advisory. The water isn’t on yet and the stores haven’t restocked. I am still under my covers unable to muster up enough energy to get out of bed at the moment.

I want something to eat, but I am scared to go back out because I don’t want a repeat of last night. Ubereats is back up and working! However, I don’t want to waste the little money I have on delivery food. I think I will check and see if Amazon has water, maybe it will be under five bucks . That’s the game plan for today. I think I just brainstormed the first half of my day See, blogging can be helpful.

With The Snow Starting To Melt, How Will Texans Get Water With Stores Not having Water?

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.

So, we have four bottles of water and the roads are still bad. We are having to take wash offs with the water in the bottles. We still have electricity, so I cannot complain. There are people who have been without electricity for days in this weather. My heart goes out to those people because this weather can kill.
