In the last post I mentioned about my weather station, it is by Black and Decker. I like that a light comes on automatically when the power goes off, that the flash light is rechargeable and it has a socket to plug in your cell phone to recharge it. You can also tune in regular radio stations, TV stations and the weather channels. I have not had to use it yet, but when it is tornado season I expect it to come in very handy. I have a variety of candles and I learned that if you prop a mirror behind them the light is even brighter. Oh, one thing I wanted to pass on to you all was a piece I saw on the news the other morning. It showed what to do in case you fall through the ice, which up here is a real possibility. They said to act like a seal, the seal bobs several times as it is trying to slide up onto the ice. So if you can you bob and try and pop yourself up onto the ice and then hopefully slide the rest of the way. It was on Good Morning America so maybe they will show it on their web site, it might be explained a little better. I figure you never know when some tidbit of information like that will come in handy.
Enjoy your weekend and all the best to you, Barbara
