Getting Prepared, Hoping for a False Alarm

After finishing our snow fences,  our last preparation for the snow is to get our truck ready.  First, the plow.


Now according to all I read and of course the Youtube video we watch every year, it should be so easy.  But in real life, its a son-of-a-gun.


Next, chains.   Not as hard.

And soon we were storm-ready.


Jack stayed with us the whole time we were working.  And then he was sooo close to his feed bowl…..just couldn’t make it.



Remember when I couldn’t decide what I would wear with this cast on my leg.  I have two pairs of sweatpants but not exactly anything I could wear out – well maybe it would be proper for Walmart.    Anyway, speaking of Walmart, I looked for something I could wear and not be worried about cutting them.



Are you kidding me?  $3.78 ???      So just some snipping around the bottom and then tuck  what I could into the top of the cast.  A Fashionista!

I’m still struggling with the feeling that the cast is too loose.  I’m trying to walk more stiff-legged instead of using the rocker on the bottom.  Also the fabric from the leggings helps a little by filling in the space between my leg and the cast.  I guess this is the problem of having the Doctor’s office 8 hours away……


About supper time (Wednesday) the snow lightly started to fall.


... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until midnight MST
Thursday night... 
Wednesday Night   100 % Precip. / 8-12 in  

Periods of snow. Low 18F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 100%. Snow accumulating 8 to 12 inches.

And that’s just tonight!  I’m pretty happy I don’t have to go anywhere tomorrow.  Here is Jake with his cast bagged up and ready to go outside.  I actually used the shower cover for my arm!  A Walmart bag goes over my foot.



Hope your second half of the week is going well so far.

One step at a time,
