Looks like a good thing my old one "kicked the bucket." The new one is only NOAA coverage.
The timing seems to be good, for there was an article in the local paper suggesting there may be another "deep Freeze" here.
They are admitting that hundreds died as a result of that ice storm last year. That was an awful week to live through. Boy had it so much worse then I did. No power, no water at all for the entire week.
God forbid it happens again. The power companies will pay the price. As will the politicians who went on vacation, etc that week. There are already news articles from the NWS stating it could.
Two days ago I dug out my winter sheets & blankets. Chances cage heater and will be making some new rice sock heaters for him and the cats. Fill socks with raw rice. Seal shut. Nuke in microwave and place in foot of a bed under the sheets, or atop a bird cage, or in a cat bed.
Learned that trick in Minnesota. 8-) It works well for critters & people.
