I certainly know what you mean, when we moved to NE Wyoming I could not believe people could survive in 40 below weather! But we did learn to PLAN & prepare! We were stranded for 4 days in a whiteout. But thank the Lord we made it to a motel. AND so grateful we had a credit card to be able to stay and eat. lol The people were wonderful and so loving and we loved our stay there except missing all the kids and g-kids so far away. Love reading your writings!


I was just thinking last night that it's been a long time since you posted or emailed stories from your past and I've been missing them. I love stories from your childhood. I've not wanted to bug you about it since you're working on your book. . . .

We have at least 8 month's food storage including powdered milk. Our worst case scenario would be to burn the playgrounds for warmth: convenient stockpile of wood!!!!! Unfortunately, we don't have a supply of water, we figured we'd purify the water in the lake.

My first year here in Utah for college, I walked home from finals (from BYU) in three foot snow drifts but landed in Dallas for the break and it was 80. It was hard to get back on that plane to return to school, that's for sure!

We make it a point to leave Utah in January for vacation. Hawaii, California, even Vegas is a nice reprieve to the teens for highs. Brrrrrrr.
