Windows at the front of the house are ice coated and you can't see out.
Tree branches are breaking off with the weight of the ice, and chunks of ice are falling. Fortunately we still have power (for now - but power is flickering and dimming often) and I am able to work from home.
It's cold out and I'm glad we have a wood burning insert in our fireplace, so if our power goes out we will still be warm and with the heat of the insert can boil water.
Situations like these are a good reminder that everyone should have an emergency preparedness plan in place. Are you prepared if your electricity should be out for several hours or day or more?
Our region has an emergency plan and have posted a guide for families. Its a great guide to get you thinking and building your own plan.
