Far North Survival

1. Have NOAA as your main page. Check frequently.
Manage grocery trips based on weather. Stock up as needed. Manage work route based on road closures. Re-schedule clients based on both.


2. Stock up on food and hot drinks before blizzard hits: tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Drink copiously in the midst of the storm.

3. Spend the morning after the rocking and rolling, thunder storming, wind whipping, ice crackling, dog howling, sleepless night of the blizzard comparing notes on who heard what, when and have a competition for who had the least amount of sleep.

4. Watch movies, read books, discuss politics, write, email, talk to Miss R on the phone who is bragging away about her mild and temperate Kentucky weather, venture out to measure the thickness of the ice, retreat back indoors and proceed to get slaughtered by the ManChild at board games.

5. Eat popcorn- cause that's tradition on Sunday nite anyway, but perfect winter weather food.

6. Drool over fast arriving seed catalogs. THINK SPRING!
