We stocked up on extra canned goods and bottled water, and cranked the freezers up as high as they will go so that food will stay frozen longer if electric goes out. I took all my outside Halloween decorations down this morning, and I think we're just about ready. The only really bad part about losing our electric is that we have a well. If the electric goes out, there's no water.
The bells of Christmas chime once more; The heavenly guest is at the door.
He comes to earthly dwelling still, With new year gifts of peace, good will.
