Candles in the Wind

This would be a good time to get some candles in if you don’t have any already. If you do have them, then you should get them out and in place so that you don’t have to fumble around in the dark to get them if the power goes out.

Make sure that you have something to light them with too. No point in having loads of candles if you have no lighter or matches to light them with.

Remember that if you have a gas stove that it is electricity used to create the spark for your gas rings.

It seems that Irish Ferries have cancelled their services and they run much further south where we ar. We are expected to get it worse.

Electricity Worries

According to the BBC website “Nothern Ireland Electricity warned of a possibility of damage to the electricity network in exposed areas, with its emergency crews and engineers put on standby”.

It could be even worse here as we are even nearer the centre of the storm and our electricity stops even when there is just a bit of wind.

Make sure that you get some food in, as well, and that you have something other than electricity to cook it in. Make sure you get matches to light your gas stove as you wouldn’t want to go out in the worst of the storms to get them.

Get Some Food

Get some food in, anyway, as even the restaurants may be hit if the lights go out.

Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Once this is all over it will very nearly be Christmas!
