Ready for the Deep Freeze
We plan on writing during the snowy weather but please stand by in case...
If you don't hear from us for a few days, blame the weather.
On early Friday morning, strong thunderstorms knocked out our power for a few hours. If you live in South Arkansas, you have surely learned if the lights flicker, you could soon be in the dark.
Sometimes our power goes out if a strong breeze blows down here in the country. No joke.
We are also still preparing for winter weather. We have no idea if we will get freezing rain, sleet, snow or a mix of everything. We know it's going to get bone-chilling cold for days on end, and we don't like it.
While generators help, we sometimes have to conserve fuel especially if we get iced in and can't get to town.
Then there's the cell service. We run off boosters down here that help strenghthen the phone signal. Electricity goes, booster goes, and so does the cell service unless you stand in a particular place in the yard. You realize if the wind chill is subzero, we aren't going to be outside trying to get a signal.
So like many of you we just don't know what's coming in the next few days.

As we travel South Arkansas, one thing we hear consistently from Monticello to Hope and beyond is our country is off kilter and upside down. We agree.
