When you're cut off from your "connection," it helps to keep a spare stash of the good stuff around when the blizzard hits. Anything to keep the children in a tranquilized state. Short of serving Nyquil for lunch. Today the power was out, the heat was off, and Mom and Dad were this close to being out of options. Aunty Grandma to the rescue!! Those big jars of pipe cleaners, glue sticks, beads, and markers are worth millions on the black market. Especially when the kids are stuck indoors.
