Usually the winter storms here are really not that bad to me, considering I grew up in Indiana, and have lived in Wisconsin and northern Illinois. However in '07 we had that record breaking ice storm and ended up with no power for over 14 days. That was rough cause with no power we also have no sewer and water.
Ever since then, when I hear bad storm, I clean up the house and make sure all dishes are clean, and do up all the laundry, and fill up bottles of water-just in case.
Up early this morning, so went to the weather channel online-this sounds like it could be one of those"big ones"
