What else matters?

Most men get into survival and prepping for the toys. The rest of it is unbearably dull.

After all, we all die eventually, so no one actually "survives".

It's the guy that dies with the most toys that wins!

Woke up this morning to everything coated with 1/2" of ice.

Temps never broke freezing all day.

I noted that the postman did not stop at my box so I never left the house.

Same here. Lost AC mains yesterday, Genny has been running. Potomac Edison crew is out the neighborhood working, so should be back up later today. Both cats curled up at the hearth happily, listening to BBC news on West Virginia Public Broadcasting http://wvpublic.org/#stream/0

RE: In need of "airing"
As predicted my Dragon rally was a tempestuous affair , snow , rain , hailstones ,sub zero temps , galeforce winds was pretty gnarly , I opted to take a small tubular camp bed as I suspected wherever we ended up was going to be waterlogged and boy was it! , my second smart move was to ride in wellies , that paid of too , so my Dragon was much less traumatic than most every body else's, roll on next year....check out the pics at Conwy mcc website
Nothing is fool proof for a sufficiently talented fool!!!!
