Earlier this week the first blizzard of the year hit. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The blizzard got me thinking ahead to Whiskey Wednesday.
The blizzard hit on the Sunday following Thanksgiving. My travelling family had already left for their homes to beat the snow.
In typical Kansas weather fashion the blizzard also came the day after we had a 70 degree day in November. It’s true what they say in Kansas; if you don’t like the weather wait five minutes. We got to enjoy every season in a four day period.
With the coming of the blizzard I made sure to have made preparations in case we lost power or couldn’t leave the house. In addition to extra toilet paper, bottled water and foods that could be eaten without heating them up I made sure to have Whiskey.
Whiskey is an all-around good idea to have during an emergency. First of all, it calms the nerves for anyone in a panic. Second, it has a warming effect, and third it can be used as an antiseptic.
The blizzard kept the girls out of school for a day, but did not cause any major power outages or problems for my family.
However, I’m glad that I was prepared – just in case.
With winter soon upon us I strongly suggest that you prepare for blizzard season, too. If you don’t need it there’s always another Whiskey Wednesday.
To your health!
