Re: Ontario Ice Storm 2013

We are back on the grid after a few days out. The power came on for a two hour period yesterday but thankfully I didn't fully trust it would stay on so we rushed around refilling the bathtub and washing dishes and taking showers.

Re: test yourself

Looks like many of us in southern Ontario will get a chance to deal with this for real today and tomorrow. Hopefully we'll all come through with flying colors or the storm ends up being a big todo about nothing.

Re: looking back..what happened

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

Goldie - If you are using canning jars with the food saver attachment I would not use an O2 absorber for any of these as the seal with just the attachment is really good.
