As I sit here at my computer in the darkest night of winter chowing on Gourmet Chocolately Caramel Crunch, I am sure that this yummy snack would be the only thing required to survive the winter chill.
But, Ari, who is hosting the weekly Fun Monday meme, was serious when she asked, “What's in your winter weather arsenal?”
We’ve had some seriously cold days and a few inches of snow scattered here and there so you have to know we own a snow shovel and a container of de-icer. (Thank God I am married to a man who loves to bundle up and take care of those early morning chores.)
The past few years have also found us in the dark more times than we care to repeat. Thus, we have a small gas powered generator to see us through any extended periods without electricity.
The wood stove is roarin’ right now and we have a fair supply of kindling and logs to feed it when the temperature drops. (It is 14º F on our patio right now.)
There is long-underwear, polar fleece masks, woolen gloves and socks, and several pair of yak-trax in drawers that will keep us moving on down the icy road.
The automobiles are also winterized with anti-freeze and wearing their snow tires. One vehicle is four-wheel drive and I’m not afraid to admit that I use it when I AM afraid.
But, maybe when I grow older – like next year – we will do the ultimate winterizing ever: Go to Arizona!
Arizona. Yeah. Sure. And there are no calories in my **Chocolatey Caramel Crunch, either.
