Been dealing with a lot of snow and cold this week. Much more of that white stuff to come tomorrow… It just keeps on getting deeper.

My biggest current preparedness plans are for an upcoming cross-country road trip to visit some good friends back on the west coast (and to get away from this snow and c-c-cold for awhile). No doubt I’ll have the back of the truck filled with ‘stuff’, but the question is what ‘stuff’ to bring 😉 It is a bit uneasy planning to be so far away from one’s home-base and the ‘what if’ scenarios that creep into the thought process – although it will be a good test for practical choices and efficient packing. Have a number of weeks yet to figure it all out though…

 
So what have you been up to?
