for the area. Yuck. I've got my stuff together just in case, so should be ok; not hugely comfortable, but ok. Tell you this: I haven't bought a generator because it's been the problem of 'buy something(and a good one ain't cheap) that you may need once or twice every three or four years'. But if all this global warmering keeps causing crap like this to happen in winter, I'm getting one. And getting the wiring Og told me about done so I can plug it into the house.
By the way, speaking of price increases, I got a gallon jug of lamp oil the other day; the stuff has a little more than doubled since I last got some.
I have to say, not as prepared as I'd like, and it's pure dumbass on my part. I need to make a list of maybe five things I need to get in the near future.
