  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Well ... power just came back on and this is the first time I've posted in this forum for a day and a half. Obama had just visited Denver and darkness followed him. No ... literally. We had a heavy, slushy snow storm and power across the state of Colorado went out. Obama had come to town...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    We're all stuck at home today. My husband plowed the driveway for 45 minutes. He really didn't want to use a personal day at work so he tried to get to the highway. One of our 4wd vehicles is now buried in the ditch about 300 yards from our house. The FIL is bringing the tractor down later...
