❄💧 Last night's freezing rain turned everything into an icy wonderland. Dangerous but beautiful and fascinating.
Some big trees got pruned by mother nature, some sprung back to life.
I hope nobody had any injuries or major damage to their property. 🙏
Big shout out to the workers at the electric company, who work 24/7 to restore the power. 👏🙏
Big shout out to the city workers who work tirelessly to keep our roads clean and save stuck vehicles and their owners. 👏🙏
My husband has been working 12-hour shifts for five days now. He has lots of crazy and happy stories to tell.
❗ This is a great time to reevaluate your emergency plans, food, water, and other supplies (toilet paper), and your emergency checklist.
Last year Covid19 hit with quarantine and empty stores. Then in the Pacific Northwest, we had forest fires where we could not even open our windows for 10 days. Lots of people had damage or lost their homes.
Now the freezing rain left tens of thousands of people without electricity, heat, and access to warm water for several days.
Do you have an emergency plan?
✅How will you keep yourself warm?
✅Will you have access to warm water?
✅Can you prepare warm food?
✅Do you have enough food, water for several days to weeks?
✅Don't forget the toilet paper. We know how precious that is.
✅ Do you have enough supply of your medication?
✅ Are your devices fully charged?
✅Are your extra chargers fully charged?
✅ Do you know your neighbors in case you need to ask for help or they might need some help?
✅ Do you have enough gas in your car in case you need to evacuate your house?
There are lots of websites out there that provide an up to date, comprehensive checklist.
❗ This is a great time to take action and prepare!
