Stocking Up


An ice storm this way comes.  

In the fifties yesterday with blue skies and today we await possible power outages.  Oh, and we had thunderstorms this morning.  Only in Kentucky can you experience all four seasons in one 24 hour time span.  


A storm of this magnitude means I needed to score some essentials for the family. And, not just the holy trinity of bread, milk, and toilet paper.  I stopped by our local Mennonite store for some Horseradish Cheese.  Because, what is a winter storm without the appropriate cheese product?  The place was hopping with activity and it is possible that I came away with a couple of other items to make the winter storm days more acceptable.  

If you are in the path of this storm, I hope you stay warm and do not lose power.  

If you are in a sunny local....soak up some rays for me!

  1. Yes, here in central Pennsylvania I hear we are in the path of the coming storm. Again. Storm necessities have become books, movies, and enough ingredients on hand in the pantry to bake up my own little storm.

  4. It's passing us by, they say.
    Had to chuckle at the 'holy trinity' reference.
    I'd replace milk with beer though.
    hehehehehe

  6. Oh, I'd love to share some sunshine and warmth with all of you in the path of the storm!! It's mid 60's right now, headed up to at least 70 before the day is over, and nothing but sunshine. Days like this are part of the repayment for our summers. Y'all stay warm and safe.

  7. I am beginning to feel guilty with all of this bad weather happening over there and here but it isn't touching us, we are more than grateful.

  10. I have never had horseradish cheese but it sure sounds good, because I like both! Hope you dont get hit too hard with ice and snow.

  11. I have had that cheese, wow, it will wake you up for sure, good stuff! I am getting ready for weather over the mountains from you, the wood is at full capacity in the cellar, extra hay is in place and covered up for the steers. It is a sunny spring like day so far.

  12. Up to 15 more inches expected here. Sheesh! I have yet to get to the grocery store.

  13. Loads of organic groceries gotten on Friday, plenty of gas for the generator, kids' Kindle Fires, our phones & laptops are all charged, and--let's be real, most important on the list when you live in your parents' yard in a camper with your 3 kids & English mastiff pup-- a couple of bottles of WV wine are chilled.... we're ready for 'Winter Storm Titan', or as ready as one can be, I suppose. :-D
    Stay safe, everyone!

  14. It was warm earlier but the bad weather is on its way...supposed to get snow tomorrow. I am SO ready for Spring!

  15. I hope the weather people are totally wrong about their forecast! But I'm sure the cheese won't go to waste in any case. ;)

  16. I will gladly try the cheese!

  18. South Carolina is similar...today was warm and spring-like; this weekend will be cold again!

  19. I would spend way too much money in that place, I'm sure! That cheese sounds wonderful! Stay safe and warm!

  20. I am not a big horseradish fan but give me a good cheddar and I am all over it.

  21. God bless you during this latest weather. It was 77 here today - so strange for early March.
    Take care.

  22. We do have some crazy weather her in Kentucky, but I was glad to get out and stock up in the nice weather yesterday. Now I am curled up waiting for the storm to pass. Stay warm and dry. xo Laura

  23. Hmmm ... sounds like the weather we used to experience near Calgary. Coffee outdoors in January in shirt sleeves followed 2 days later by 40 below zero ! Weather forecasters had the same reputation as used car salesmen.

    Great-looking store. Hope the storm doesn't wreak too much havoc. Spring is only weeks away ;>)

  26. I hope you can weather the ice storm and the power stays on. Be safe . . .

  27. Cheese sounds good, hope everything is okay!

  28. Indeed. We lost power for two days a couple of weeks ago. One of the bonuses of living in a very rural county. My holy trinity consists of locating the kerosene lanterns, filling the bathtub with water for "flushing" purposes, and making sure I have a good book to read.....:)

  29. Oh I hope you made it through and enjoyed the necessary cheese product. Take care. Hug B

  30. I hope you didn't loose power! We had a sunny day here but it was below zero.

  31. I am soaking for you, Michelle. That cheese sounds yummy. Horseradish and cheese...two of my favorite things...together. Stay safe and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh I love horseradish cheese. It is weird weather for sure. yesterday it was 63*. This morning it is sleeting/snowing, and schools are closed. Strange times.

    ReplyDelete
  33. We are iced in......80's here on Saturday and I'm talking Sunburn weather....today, ice is everywhere and it's predicted we won't reach above freezing temps today. Stay inside and keep warm....enjoy your cheese!! sounds delish!!
    NO school for us today!!

  35. That is a great photo, what a neat looking grocery store. Our supermarket was packed out last night. I bought fixings for soup that I will make for tonight. And we bought a cake. I rarely buy cake but I guess I decided we needed a treat if we were going to be stuck at home all day :). Hope you keep your power too.

  36. So how did everything turn out? Did you get a bad storm? Very little snow fell here, but the windchill was -9 this morning. Comfort food has been the rule this winter.

    ReplyDelete
  37. same here in Texas...80 degrees on Saturday....18 degrees on Sunday...with ice...and Thunder...windchill 9...Mother Nature is not playing nice this year...

  38. Good luck with the storm... glad you were able to stock up on provisions!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. "What is a winter storm without the appropriate cheese product?" HA!! That cracked me up. :)
    No yo-yo-ing of the weather here... just cold & more cold. -30° overnight for about 4 or 5 days.
    Stay safe!

  40. Hunkering down with a hunk of cheese! So funny! But the weather is NOT! Hope you didn't get hit too hard. What a crazy winter. xo Karen

  41. Hope you got through the storm alright. We got sleet and snow. I'm about ready to pack up and move to the Carribean. Oh wait... they have hurricanes. Let's see... Can't think of a good place so guess I will stay here and wait on spring.

  42. You are funny, Michelle. That is a different take on storm essentials.
