Winter has finally hit Kentucky!
|The last of the summer plants|

|I hope my boxwood survive. We have ice as well as snow.|
AAA came to tow the car. All is ok...except for having that scare. Daughter was beyond frightened. And I think son-in-law may have had the stuffing scared out of him. I'm just guessing.

Please pack a "warm" box in your trunk or back seat along with your other winter safety equipment. (sand, old rug, shovel)
Pack a couple of blankets, extra heavy coats, an extra sweater for layering, hats, heavy scarves, insulated socks, and insulated gloves. Include some hand warmer packs too. Maybe even add an old pair of snow and slush boots.
If you slide off of the road and have to either walk for help, or have to wait for someone to rescue you, you may be facing some frigid temps.
I may be preaching to the choir...but a close call by a family member makes you think of the "what if" and "should have" things. How many of you have reminded family to be careful out there on the snow and ice? :-)
If you are in the path of this snow storm, be safe. Stay in. Sometimes we have to live like pioneers and stay in when the weather tells us to hibernate.
Out in rural Kentucky we don't have plowed roads. Until the last couple of years we have usually had a huge four-wheel drive SUV.
When gas prices shot up, and hubby did not have to make trips to town to sign papers/work, we traded down to a front wheel drive car. Ha!
I wish I had one of those old trucks right now! And we even had a snow plow that fit onto the tractor. Those were the days!
Be safe out there folks!
Thanks for visiting.
