Why is your wife freaking out over a storm in Florida? You’re 1000 miles away and up in the mountains?

Here’s what we did when I was growing up. Stock up on candles and kerosene. Fill up the bath tub with water, make lots of ice and only open the refrigerator door if you needed something. For entertainment we had board games and guitar.

The weather man starts out saying 3-6 inches of snow. No big deal. When it's done its 2 feet and the power is out for 5 days. No heat. Even if we had propane, there's switch on the wall. Ridiculous.
Oh we got dumped on 4 times in March. Lost power. Twice for like 9 days. 2G in hotel.
Mom was stuck in Bergen county(and had to get a hotel) and Pippa and I were at home with no power. Pippa and I had to sleep together in parkas and gloves, in the morning inside temp was 50 and we get rescued out, taken to Bergen county hotel. Roads a mess. Power poles trees down everywhere.
I believe it was necessary.
(Watch-we'll never lose power again)
