November 17-23 Winter Weather Preparedness Week

4 Comments

Governor Pence has proclaimed November 17-23, 2013 as Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.

To help Hoosiers prepare for this the Indiana State Police offers the following tips.

Be prepared:
Ø Before traveling, check the forecast and let someone know your travel route
Ø Keep your gas tank at least half-full
Ø Carry a winter driving kit that should include blankets, flashlight, extra batteries, a brightly colored cloth, sand (or kitty litter), shovel, candle, matches, non-perishable high calorie food, first aid kit, and jumper cables
Ø Have a cell phone and charger cord
Ø Slow down on snow/ice covered roads
Ø Allow extra time to arrive at your destination
Ø Clear all vehicle windows of ice and snow. Remove snow from hood, roof and lights.
Ø Use extra caution when driving across bridges, underpasses, shaded areas and intersections where ice is slow to melt
Ø Avoid abrupt stops and starts. Slow down gradually.

Should you become stranded:
Ø Don’t leave your car. It’s the best protection you have.
Ø Tie a brightly colored cloth to your antenna
Ø Roll down your window a small amount to allow fresh air in your vehicle
Ø Keep exhaust pipe free of blockage to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning
Ø Don’t panic. An idling car uses approximately one gallon of gas per hour

What a nice way to end the year, and begin the new year. With new followers! You are most appreciated!

so it’s NYE, and I am sitting after waking up late. I must have been really tired. I slept past noon. oy!
I’m watching my boxed set of Stargate: Atlantis. Proofing some stories to post on the PlotBunny site, and trying to figure out what I want for dinner.

speaking of; is there a tradition of eating Chinese food on 12/30? Because last night the take out Chinese food place I go was packed. And when I called my best friend, who also decided to have Chinese, his restaurant was also packed. Anyone else??
But I’m still thinking Chinese sounds good. When in doubt, I always have Chinese. Just me.

otherwise, patty melt, cheesy fries, and a chocolate malt sounds good too. I rarely eat junk food. But every now and then, it’s time to have a junk food fest. And I remember moderation. If I only do this once a month or every other month, I’m good. Pizza sounds good too. And I’m def not, a big pizza person.

I think at the mo, I’m just really hungry. 😀 LOL Time to go find some food.

And wow, Ry Robbins is on this ep of Stargate: Atlantis. Scifi actor’s don’t die, they just move to another scifi show. Ry Robbins is Henry on Sanctuary. Another one of my favorite shows. I hear I missed a marathon of Sanctuary yesterday. aww 😦 but I was able to see the newest ep, and not wait for Hulu to air it. Although I’ll rewatch it again when Hulu does. 🙂

so…I think I need to go some food. Finish proofing this story and keep the phone next to me to call the cops, when the neighbor’s get stupid, and fire off their rifles at midnight. People the bullets come back down!! OY!! DO NOT GO FIRING WEAPONS AT MIDNIGHT! DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!

If you are going out tonight, take this # with you, and use it, PLEASE!
NO excuses! Don’t drink and drive! And don’t ride with anybody who does.Tipsy Tow offered by AAA: You don’t have to be an AAA member, from 6pm-6am on New Year’s Eve/Day they will take your drunk self and your car home for FREE. Save this number… 1-800-222-4357 . This is available nationwide!

Okay, now go enjoy NYE and stay safe!!

ugh…heat/humidity whatever!

okay so earlier I made the mistake of looking at a temperature guage and it was 100 degrees.
just a couple of minutes ago, one of my favorite maintenance guys came by to say hi, and drop off some churros! He’s here after hours, because the compressor is down. Why it’s so hot in my office. No air conditioning! eeeks! 😦
I have a box fan running now. And yes, no noises from the AC unit, so it’s still down. I can only imagine how the people on the floor above me feel. Heat rises. UGH! 😦

good news though, I got a phone call, I’m going to go see a movie after work! Yay!! my popcorn level was getting low. LOL 🙂

please stay cool & Hydrated! Heat is dangerous!!
