We don't have snow, and may not get any of this batch (we are just far enough West to not be in it) - but I'm waiting! I like snow!! As long as it's not 6 feet deep and 30 below zero!!! That's the type of winters I endured when I lived up North!! Too much for me! LOL!
We have gone as long as 14 days without power here from an ice storm. Bring out the generator!! LOL! I always keep my cabinets stocked full of beans and such, so no worries about
the majority of food, although if we get iced in for 2 weeks, I do run out of things like almond milk and such. LOL - but we improvise. At least we have plenty of food!!
Do enjoy it!!!
your chest congestion, can you get some mullein? If you do a with it in it, it would likely help clear up some of that congestion:
"Today, for those of us living in the modern world, mullein is best known for its treatment of bronchial and lung ailments, such as coughs, colds, croup, bronchitis, asthma, and even whooping cough. It is also used to treat earache. It is a mucilaginous herb that contains properties similar to marshmallow root. To make a tea of mullein, steep 1 or 2 teaspoons in a cup of water for about
10 minutes, and then carefully strain. The little fuzzy hairs of the leaves can irritate the throat; so remove them by straining through a cloth. To make it more palatable, you can mix it with a little peppermint, and sweeten with raw honey to taste. To make a cough syrup, gently boil a cup of dried leaves in a cup of water until half of the water is gone. Strain through a cloth, pushing all the liquid out. While it is still warm, add 2 tablespoons of raw honey and mix well. This remedy can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one month. Use it like a regular cough syrup, taking 1 teaspoon every 3 or 4 hours. I have inhaled the steam from boiling mullein to clear my lungs and break up heavy chest congestion. To prepare this remedy, I boil a cup of the leaves in a quart of water. After removing the boiled liquid from the stove, I lean over with my face right over the pot. Then, I place a towel over my head and breathe in the mullein steam. Use caution when doing this as the pot and liquid are very hot. Mullein has been used very effectively for many generations to relieve earache. Soak a teaspoon of the leaves in 2 tablespoons of warm olive oil for 5 minutes or so; the leaves will absorb all the oil. After it cools, add a small amount of fresh, grated garlic. Mix well, and squeeze the oil out of the herbs through a fine cloth. Put just a few drops of this oil into the ear. It is soothing and healing."/www.bulkherbstore.com/blog/mullein/
