We got the sleet and frozen rain that they predicted for our area yesterday, but thankfully we haven't lost power.
I was worried that not only would we be cold since the temps were in the 20's all day, but the loss of food (I stockpile) would be hard to recoup. We bought a propane heater last year when Lowe's sent us a coupon so we would have been able to stay warm at least in front of it, but we have yet to purchase a generator to run the freezer/fridge when there is a power outage.
It's hard to put down that money when we have so many other bills (new dishwasher, dr. bills, car payment, need to get a chimney cap put on, etc.).
I have so much money tied up in our freezer/fridge although I didn't pay full price for everything. Those sales items are gone as far as when they were on sale and so are the coupons, so it would be hard to replace.
If the roads clear I hope to get to Lowe's Foods today and see if I can find some great deals while they are offering super doubles ($2 or less coupon is doubled) since I didn't get to go yesterday.
