Wife thought I was going overboard, actually what I really should have done was gone full bore survivalist and ended up getting a generator.
This is going to hurt
*GMC was right*
However - if you cant get enough gasoline to run your generator it will not matter. I dont know anyone who stockpiles that much gasoline to be without power for more than 3 days.
I mentioned this earlier in this thread, but basically I had been constantly arguing with my over preparations for this storm. We haven't seen eye to eye on a lot of things lately and this was just another classic example.
Everything I tried to do she thought I was 'overdoing it'. From the number of cases of water I purchases, to the amount of bread, and pop tarts I bought, down to the number of logs I split, she thought I was going 'overboard'.
Her grand plan for riding out the storm was 'going to your sister's house a mile away...her rationale was that the storm was going to 'hit south of us'.
This is what the road to my sisters house looked like, there were several more of these gauntlets along the way:
Thoughts of strangulation entered my mind. I told her there is no way I am driving under those with the kids in the car.
Regardless I think she now realizes how right I was about this storm....of course she'll never admit to it.
