let it snow let it snow let it snow

Got My Beep Repaired



The Big Storm kicked off almost exactly at the predicted time, letting us finish bowling (we won one game) and doing a quick run to the grocery store.

Now it’s coming down, and the latest prediction is that we’ll pick up 8” tonight and another 16” tomorrow. The storm is predicted to last until late tomorrow afternoon.

Right. So we’re ready here. Got gas in the cars. Topped off their fluids and checked the tire pressures. Parked them facing out and downhill, so they can be jumped or bumped if necessary.

I’m pretty sure we’ve got enough food for the next 10 days or so. 4 kinds of breakfast meats, frozen waffles, pancakes from mix, plenty of eggs, fresh milk for a couple different kinds of cold cereal, and of course, oatmeal.

Several cans of soup, a couple loaves of bread, 6 kinds of sandwich meat, 2 cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and several jars of peanut butter.

Snacks ... covered from candy bars to chips to trail mix to nuts, berries, and two kinds of grapes. Frozen pizzas just in case.

Fresh salad for dinner, 4 frozen vegetables, chicken, pork rib ends, about 20 ounces of thawed tri-tip steak, a bag of frozen fries and 5lb of Russet potatoes from Idaho. Not to mention the iron rations of canned tuna and Spam. And spaghetti sauce.

And of course drinks. Soda, ice tea, fresh milk, fruit juices, teas and coffee. Somewhere there is also beer.

Dishes are done. Laundry is done. Plenty of towels and blankets. Cell phones charged and fresh batteries in several flashlights. Extra toilet paper on standby.

Garbage and recycling are out. Beer is cooling in the snow. Outside cats fed, inside cats fed, extra kibble and cat food set and ready.

Snow shovel by the door, ice melt in a covered 5 gallon bucket.

If the power fails I can grill, got a spare tank of propane in the garage, and we even have some dry wood in case we need to make a fire in the fireplace.

Yup. Be prepared ... and we are. Our beep is as repaired as it can be.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
