Quilters Ready for the Blizzard?

Let's assume you have enough fabric to get through a blizzard. Heh, heh.
Not so fast. How about enough low volumes for backgrounds? Backings? Thread?
Keep a hand-sewing project ready too, in case the power goes out. 
What do you do to get ready for a blizzard?
We're expecting 30"!
I'm making a "chain" quilt. Photos coming soon!

Other then the small stuff( power, food, water) I make sure I have a stack of books, fabric, and chocolate

When prepping for a blizzard I make sure the iPad is fully charged, and that I have some sewing projects to work on. I love to do binding during a blizzard because I can snuggle under the quilt while I do the hand stitching.

I've been waiting for a good snow-sew day and now we are going to get one! Whoopie! I'll be hand stitching with my snake light around my neck if we lose power.

I've got a wall hanging that needs threads buried and binding stitched. And a friendship star quilt is ready to be quilted, if the power stays on! #blizzardquilting

I agree with the comment about binding when it's cold. That's how I nap-test a quilt.

Our DC-area blizzard is rain with a smidge of snow. The resulting ice will be enough to paralyze traffic tomorrow, with 24-hour TV weather coverage.

Keep warm, everyone!

In Atlanta we have our Blizzard at the Dairy Queen, too. Nice one, QuiltSwissy. :)
