Severe Winter Weather

Keep track of the weather in the area where you are. Its been real bad going all across the USA with ice and snow. They said to even be prepared for power outages. I pray its not like last year. There was so much damage in some states it looked like a war zone 1000s didn't have power for weeks.

your so right about that part thats why Im being a bit over emotional

we were lucky to get power restored as soon as we did

however the real dilema is many elderly only rely on electric and are in big trouble should power be lost

hypothermia only takes 3 to 6 hours to set in ,and people literally do die from it

I had a wood burning stove through the ice storm and could still get water from a spring so all was cozy and well

I was very concerned for others who were not so prepared and I pray the weather gets warmer

once power is lost I will go on watch in case any one needs rescued I hope for the best

a lot of the needed supplies for keeping the roads clear is severely diminished and you all know Washington takes presidence

so most won't be traveling anywhere if more snow is to come

things go by population so the lower populated communities and counties will be last to get cleared roads

the once again part is a re-accuring problem

Elijah's Mantle
I posted that a couple of weeks ago. The good thing is most of that is over now.
:smiley50: not for some of the higher elevations Im afraid to tell you :smiley170:

2 to 4 inches more
and many of the folks who lost power in the ice storm just got power restored the whole state up here was declared a state of emergency and the dwindling supply of salt is diminished even more since Washington's big blast . It is over for the folks who watch TV and see the over all part of whats happening but unfortunately NOT for the locals in higher elevations of the mountains . :smiley170: they have almost decided to re-name themselves the lost frozen chosen :smiley170: so for those who dont live it yes it was weeks ago now for those still suffering the weather the yet again part gets some what hard after most have figured lives resumed as normal weeks ago ..... Not true for some unfortunately

Yes it was and still is bad for some. What I meant was there were places that kept getting hit with it for over 2 weeks now. Some getting three FEET of snow. Even a few on here have had a rough month. So its not as bad now as it was but still snowing alot many places

the only reason by the way I was even able to post a post is because I finally traveled out of the state of emergency
sorry have not been able to be of more help in the helper arena but the circumstances was non-permissive and I am sorry if any are
sore at me because I was unable to be of more use to you all here on the Helper part since I was supposed to be one
but now seemingly yes your right that part is restricted to me now so yes I guess its over
Its not my fault most never understood here there was a state of emergency that affected some areas very badly
and as I tell you ,the only reason I can get back on is due to traveling out side my home area
so it would have been good if I could have known in advance and told you but that is not how things turned out

I realize most folks are scratching there head because apparently they dont realize I moved
725 miles and am no longer a sun dried Floridian
need to change my loc in profile so no one gets major confused

No I didn't know you were not in FL. I realize and was even watching for certain ones and locations here knowing their electicity could go off without notice. I was in that boat before. Mine tried to go off too a few times under all the layers of ice and lots of snow got a couple weeks. We've been having prayer for some in prayer requests. Praise the Lord your power is back on! And you are back on

We are in prayer as of this writing. It's incredible how we hear about the weather conditions and a minute later go back to what we were thinking about. When we suffered the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco it was a wakeup call, especially when it happens in your own backyard, amen?

Thank you for the update.

Your brother in Christ Jesus.
