June, with the world and the economy like it is, I would love to hear more stories on what worked for you and what didn't. Living in Southern Ariz., I may never be in an ice storm, but you never know. :)  I would love to know what you guys think we should store that we would need no matter the situation would be. I guess you can never store enough water, huh? And batteries?? Does anyone know to make them last longer?
Thank for the stories.

Thanks Jean for your letter. Here in Henderson , Baxter co. Ar. was a mess,
and still some last night didn't have power from 27th Jan till 6th of Feb.
we got our's on just after dark. We didn't have a generator for 2 days,
the burners on our gas cook stove. kept water (hawled to us by dau) in pots
with steam, and we could cook .had a a freezer full of meats was worried we
would loose that, but Karen stood in line 5 hrs. at Home Depot in first
truck load to get them and us generators. I keep alot of canned stuff in my
cabnits for we live about 15 mi out .Which came in handy. I even keep loaves
of bread frozen. makes good toast buttered browned in skillet. Have 2 #2
lamps and keep oil another good light on batteries to take to
"fraidy" hole.
Us old folks know how to cope with this better than the younger bunch. my
girls when they were growing up got some of this kind of experiance.An old
was pan full of warmed water on gas stove to wet, and wipe keeps you from
stinking to bad. Ha! Thank goodness for "flavored spray".Had a good
of that. The first 2 nights was a little rough i slept in heavy sweets 2
house coats and we had alot of cover so made it ok. Made me think how mom
used to pile so much cover on us couldn't move, buried up in feather beds.
Some times you she would heat the old iron wrap in blanket put to our feet..
You would pull up your knees till they would get to hurting and then when
you streched out your legs you would freeze again. LOL.

Sun is in and out sure looks good this morning. Suppose to rain tomorrow and
possible severe weather the first of the week. Lord know's that all we need
now. At least we have a place this year to go, and our generator. Guess that
is about enough probably tired of hearing me.Love Ya!! Junebug
