Knew I had all the essentials already... toilet paper, cat food/litter, coffee and good "junk" food. Went out today to fill up car with gas... afterward thought this is something I generally do when storm will be bringing snow?? Gas station was INSANE!! One or 2 cars WAITING to get gas at every pump! Noticed many people filling up gas cans/containers... for generators?? I don't have one... hoping power doesn't go out or at least not for long.

Have several small flashlights around the house... and a few big ones with good batteries in them. Have 2 "replica" mining lanterns from my Dad's house... put out nice amount of light. Have a small tv/radio (tv useless) ready... takes nine D batteries.

Don't have a well, so won't be without water if power goes out. Know I can cook on gas stove top, but will have to manually light burners. NOT that I plan to need to use oven, but can you manually start a "modern" gas stove??
