I knew snow was coming. It was likely going to be a lot of snow. That meant I would not be able to leave my house for two days. I went to the store twice that day before the snow hit. It didn’t know what to buy. I had plenty of food, but I was having trouble planning for a lack of electricity. As soon as the power went out, I knew.
I have lots of candles – and not just Hanukkah candles – but I don’t have a flashlight. I often use the one on my phone, but that is not a good use of my phone battery in an emergency. I have lots of bread and peanut butter, but not a lot of jelly. And I can make oatmeal on my gas stove, but I’m running low on honey.
