So I find myself preparing for a storm in different ways.

I had the standby generator serviced and fuel oil delivered.  I replenished my supply of gas  at  camp for the snowblower and snowmobiles.  I  split and stockpiled wood for the woodstove and fireplace.  Beyond that–

I laid in a supply of Irish whiskey, Anchor Porter and Macanudos.  I smoked a brisket and a couple of chicken breasts. I restocked the dog food.

We are ready.
