Kelly's Korner - Thoughts and Notifications

Hey, All,

Today will be my last post until after Christmas.  I will be on vacation from December 14-27th doing my usual holiday/birthday stuff.  Making miniature Almond Joys and my special Chex mix, cleaning and rearranging and just taking some time to relax.  That is, of course, if the whole of Portland doesn't float away in this rainstorm we are having!

This is the street in front of
my girlfriend's house - you
can't even see the sidewalk or
According to the weather people, we are supposed to be getting about 4" of rain in the next few days and we have lakes where there should be streets and sidewalks.  No matter what the weather is where you are - please be careful driving.  Better to be late than not there at all.  Take the time to appreciate your friends and family and what you have.  Lots of people have way less.

Told you it was raining lots!
If you are having adverse weather in your area, it pays to be prepared.  Make sure you have flashlights, candles, maybe an alternate heat source, and food that doesn't require cooking - break out the camping gear! If your power goes out, shut down all electronics - flipping breakers will work because you have all your's marked, right?  Power outages and surges can fry the electronics in your appliances, too - not just the TV and computers.  Keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed - it will help keep food cold longer.  If your gutters are overflowing, you may get wet, but get all the debris out.  Get out and clean the leaves out of the streets and unstop the stormdrains.  Stay away from downed power lines.  Most of all, use common sense and stay SAFE!

We will be celebrating Christmas in the new home of my newlywed nephew and his beautiful wife.  We've had a few new additions to the family this year and we love them all.  I'm looking forward to some nice down time.

Have a very safe and Merry Christmas!

Please note that W L May will be closed December 24-27th and December 31-January 3rd.  Nice long holiday weekends for us!
