No, it's not a review for some terrible horror story I'm reading! It's a freezing cold storm moving in from Russia to hit the UK this week. It is going to get very cold, travel will be disrupted by heavy snowfall and there is a warning about the loss of power across the country. England have started getting the snow today and it is to be worse on Tuesday, while Scotland is expected to get hit on Wednesday. If that wasn't enough there is Storm Emma coming in to hit the UK around Friday.
I plan to be blogging as normal unless of course we lose power. If you don't see me around your blogs or answering comments and posting stuff this week, it's just the loss of power. I figured I better say so in advance just in case! If we do lose power I'm not greatly concerned about it. I'm well stocked on batteries and lanterns for light, we have gas fires, bottled water, food, camping stove and gas, extra duvet and blankets and other useful stuff!
If you've read the news articles online or watch the TV media, you might be seeing people were in panic buying mode in UK shops today, buying up entire trolleys of bottled water and loaves of bread as if it truly was the end of the world-and that is BEFORE the power was even mentioned as being at risk! They emptied the shelves like a swarm of locusts. Imagine the scenes of chaos if the lights did go out like in my EMP books...kind of makes you think!
Anyway, stuffing my inner prepper back in her box, hopefully I won't lose power and will see you each day as normal!
