We did not expect this storm on April 10th, 2019. We weren’t stocked with the right kinds of food. The roads quickly became impassible, and the lights went out. We did not have enough food in our home because most edibles were in our new LG refrigerator, a Christmas Present replacing the old leaking Frigidaire. Our old electric stove sat in the house but didn’t match the rest of the appliances now Besides it had taken major cosmetic dings and though and didn’t match excellent LG microwave oven, nor the new fridge. What good were these appliances without access to dry goods, caned goods that could provide nutritious meals. We’d opted for our small remodeled kitchen equipped all new matching appliances. Marge never liked a dishwasher, so that space became new counter top at the time for the remodel. But, even so Wesley took us completely off guard, this the strongest Blizzard on record. Wesley started out as a simple rain and snow shower and quickly developed into the strongest winter storm on record. Our new appliances were dependent’t on that beautiful new LG refrigerator, and we were dependent on electricity.
Almost all of our food is in this lovely new refrigerator. However, we had a few cans of soup, tuna, and crushed tomatoes, paste, sauce, most fixings for spaghetti. First roads became impassible about 10 p.m. and lights began to flicker. Lights had performed such a dance in winter storms in the past, but even with warnings on our computers, in the newspaper, and we didn’t heed media believing News and weather sources might exaggerate our situation. After all, one does not expect more than the average snow storm on April 10th, the middle of Spring. The Lord seemed far away that evening and not in need. We underestimated all our friends, and pastor Jan, my friends, what could they do?
