The temperature keeps dropping with each hour..-7 now..all schools are cancelled because of the frigid weather...
I use the solar lights that I have outside lining my driveway..I bring them inside and they help with giving off a nice glowing light.. Don't have to worry about lighting a candle.
IT's a good idea to be ready for the
electricity to go off or heaven forbid the furnace would quit.. WHen you live in the midwest one has to be ready.
Have a Blessed day~! ta ta for now from Iowa~!

Good day to hibernate, so dang cold all over.....Love the oil lamps, they do come in handy, we had the power go out last night but not for long, thank goodness, Keep Cozy, Francine.

I'm glad to see that you are all stocked up and ready supplied and that Miggs is taking the sensible option and staying in for once. She is a clever girl. STAY SAFE AND WARM. Please! xx

And it's heading east too! It's still +8 out this evening and some of our snow melted down in the rain this afternoon. Flash freeze for tonight though. :( Keep safe and cozy.

The weather is frightful, I've got the generator ready just in case of an outage.
I love your oil lamps and woodburner, so cozy and inviting.
Stay warm !

We are doing the same. No school again tomorrow and our wood stove is working overtime!

Gail said...

It is nice to be prepared.

I have my grandmother's old lamps.

Linda said...

The temperature is below zero and the wind is still blowing. I hibernated today instead of going to the office. The furnace doesn't work that well and I have been trying to have a cold. Your wood stove and lamps remind me of growing up on the farm. I have some lamps here so that if we lose our electricity I will have some light. I even keep wooden matches on hand. It has been miserable and they called off school. I just want it to warm back up. Have a wonderful day. Stay warm and safe. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri friend.

We had the high winds and whiteouts last night. Today the wind has died down, but it's bitterly cold! Can't wait till spring! Stay warm.
