I have the phone charger....

I have the charger capabilities but no cord in there. That being said, when we get that much snow, I don't go anywhere.

This is very good information SER.

Windshield Scraper, and perhaps a phone adapter? The food, I will have to pick the pcs. that fell on the floor, and dehydrated. Since my shoes alway's seem to have salt on them, the snow should melt from them. Put another way, I'm screwed, but we have each other.

I have no snow! I have no ice storms.

All that stuff would fill the bed of my truck.

I'm like OKIE: if it's that bad out there, I'm not going.

If you're from Wisconsin, just make sure you change from your sandals to hard soled shoes.

Last time it was bitterly cold and butt deep, blowing snow, they waited until 4:45 am to close schools. What was worse was they did an all-call to homes at 5:07 am. Many parents (and employees) were jarred awake in the dark, thinking that someone was in jail or dead. Hope they can make up their minds sooner this time if the temp dips too low.
