The 'Mother of All Ice Storms' is supposedly moving in today, and I've heard it predicted that it could leave a nice, thick 3 inch layer of ice pack before all is said and done. The news has been warning people not to drive, and to stock up on food supplies and flash lights because of imminent power outages from the weight of the ice on power lines and trees and such. Chris and I are a bit skeptical because we've found Oklahoma Weathermen to be...um... a bit on the dramatic side thus far, ("it's the end of the world, we swear!") but if what they're saying is true, it could be a long week ahead. And you know what I realized today after talking to my mom? If the power goes out, SO DOES THE HEATER. What then? I wish we had a fireplace. I may resort to a bonfire in the bathtub made entirely of 'Elmo's World' videos. That would warm me in more ways than one.
So, I'm racking my brain trying to figure out ways to keep Ezra from going stir crazy these next few days. I don't want him to just watch hours and hours of his blessed new 'Cars' DVD. Any tips on how to keep the boredom away?
I really need your help.
The lights are beginning to flicker. Eeep! save meeeeeee!
