My entire family panicked over the upcoming storm.
They were calling for drifting snow as well as harsh and low temps.
The storm was to begin as freezing rain as well as end with freezing sleet with up to several feet of snow in between. Everyone knew what this kind of storm would do to their electricity. Fallen trees knocked down the electricity lines once or twice each year. The heavy snow as well as ice often pulled down the power wires. We didn’t have many concerns. We recently had the generator cleaned as well as taken care of. A month earlier, all of us had the furnace taken care of, as well as all of us knew all of us would have power as well as no need to stress about lack of heat! Sadly, not all of our friends as well as family were as well prepared as all of us were. The storm had barely begun when all of us started getting iPhone calls. I couldn’t refuse to let our parents come to the house. They had already lost their power as well as their furnace was no longer toiling. My wife’s older sibling called as well as told us she couldn’t be in a house separate from heating, since she had a newborn. When our wife’s associate called, I had enough. I told her associate to go find a hotel. We weren’t running a shelter for people who had a lack of preplanning. We did our planning as well as made sure our furnace would function regardless of what happened with the power. If all of us could get a power generator to keep our furnace toiling, so could most people else. I suppose they’re pretty fancy, however it’s also fancy to go separate from the furnace as well as have pipes freeze over, or people are sick or dying from frostbite.
