We will be fine. I am praying that our power doesn't go out. I mean, the power going out at our house is inconvenient, but manageable. We have two fireplaces so we won't freeze to death. But I worry about our animals. We have baby turkeys in our brooder barn, and we have heifers starting to calve. We already had one baby calf brought into the "nursery," which means my husband and kids had it in our basement rubbing it down with towels and drying it off with the blow dryer. Yes, that's farm life. I would appreciate your prayers for our turkey barns. They are not built to withstand extreme slow loads, and our barns are old. If we truly get 12-15" like they are saying, well, I know people who had barns collapse under less snow than that. But I put all in the Father's hands. I trust Him to perfect all that concerns me. So while I pray that our barns don't collapse, I ask foremost for His will. He knows best. Please agree with me in prayer for our Lord to watch over and protect us, and not just me and my family, but everybody affected by this snow. It is just beginning to get light outside and the snow is coming down.
Stay warm my friends, and be safe! This is the day that the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it.
